The IESG has reclasssified the following RFCs as Historic: RFC0652 Telnet output carriage-return disposition option RFC0653 Telnet output horizontal tabstops option RFC0654 Telnet output horizontal tab disposition option RFC0655 Telnet output formfeed disposition option RFC0656 Telnet output vertical tabstops option RFC0657 Telnet output vertical tab disposition option RFC0658 Telnet output linefeed disposition These RFCs were published in October, 1974. Technical Summary These are obscure telnet options, and the oldest RFCs that are still at Proposed Standard without having been updated. The functionality they describe might once have been useful, but is now generally provided by ANSI (or similar) terminal escape sequences. Working Group Summary There is not currently an IETF working group for vanilla telnet; however, the firstname.lastname@example.org list was consulted about this action. There were no objections to moving these documents to Historic. Protocol Quality Keith Moore and Harald Alvestrand reviewed the spec for IESG. No implementations were found.
