Tony Locke <tlocke at tlocke.org.uk> added the comment:
Regarding the RFC list issue, I've posted a new patch with a new RFC list that combines ndim's list and the comments from #5650.
Pitrou argues that http://dead:beef::]/foo/ should fail because it's a malformed URL. My response would be that the parse() function has historically assumed that a URL is well formed, and so this change to accommodate IPv6 should continue to assume the URL is well formed.
I'd say that a separate bug should be raised if it's thought that parse() should be changed to check that any URL is well-formed.
