Dear folks

Please be aware of an upcoming NFD Management API change: *faces/create
command requires canonical FaceUri*.
This change will happen no sooner than Dec 04 12:00 UTC.

A canonical FaceUri for UDP and TCP tunnels should specify either IPv4 or
IPv6, have IP address instead of hostname, and contain port number.

Examples of canonical FaceUri:
udp4://192.0.2.1:6363
udp6://[2001:db8::1]:6363
tcp4://192.0.2.1:6363
tcp6://[2001:db8::1]:6363

Examples of non-canonical FaceUri that will be rejected by faces/create
command after the change:
udp://192.0.2.1
udp://example.net:6363
udp4://example.net:6363
udp6://example.net:6363
tcp://192.0.2.1
tcp://example.net:6363
tcp4://example.net:6363
tcp6://example.net:6363

*If you have a library / application that utilizes NFD faces/create
command, please canonize the FaceUri before sending the command*.
Scripts calling nfdc command line tool are unaffected by this change.

Yours, Junxiao
