A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.

List address:
To subscribe:


IETF activities are primarily organized into open-participation working groups (WGs). RFC 2418 provides guidance about the structure and operation of IETF working groups. The current draft seeks revisions to conform to changes in practices. 

Specifically the draft: 

o Replaces general IETF tutorial material that it had with pointers to independent versions 

o Incorporates work from a number of targeted efforts over the years 

o Reorganizes content to aid direct use by working group participants 

o Distinguishes between formal IETF requirements and processes, versus common practices chosen by working groups, where the latter are primarily discussed in a non-normative external IETF Wiki that can be continually revised by the community. 

For additional information, please contact the list administrators.
