This document describes a simple process that allows authors of
Internet-Drafts to record the status of known implementations by
including an Implementation Status section.  This will allow
reviewers and working groups to assign due consideration to documents
that have the benefit of running code, which may serve as evidence of
valuable experimentation and feedback that have made the implemented
protocols more mature.

This process is not mandatory.  Authors of Internet-Drafts are
encouraged to consider using the process for their documents, and
working groups are invited to think about applying the process to all
of their protocol specifications.  This document obsoletes RFC 6982,
advancing it to a Best Current Practice.

BCP: This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for 
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF-Announce and rfc-dist lists.
