It would be nice to know how to manage the memory of a newly set URL (part) from the documentation. From reading the respective source file lib/urlapi.c, I gather that the changes represent that accurately: The string that ends up being written to the URL struct is either malloc'ed before either due to encoding or appending a query, or it is strdup'ed.

I made the wording similar to the man page for CURLOPT_URL:

The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this
