A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory Services
Working Group of the IETF.                                                 

       Title     : Recommendations for an X.500 
                   Production Directory Service

This document contains a set of basic recommendations for a country-level 
X.500 DSA.  These recommendations can only be considered a starting point 
in the quest to create a global production quality X.500 infrastructure.  
For there to be a true "production quality" X.500 infrastructure more work 
must be done, including a transition from the 1988 X.500 (plus some 
Internet extensions) to the 1993 X.500 standard (including the '93 
replication and knowledge model).  This document does not discuss 
this transition.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-x500-pds-directory-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
