A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the MHS-DS Working Group of the 

       Title     : Introducing Project Long Bud:  Internet Pilot Project 
                   for the Deployment of X.500 Directory Information in 
                   Support of X.400 Routing

The Internet X.400 community (i.e.  GO-MHS) currently lacks a distributed 
mechanism providing dynamic updating and management of message routing 
information.  The IETF MHS-DS Working Group has specified an approach for 
X.400 Message Handling Systems to perform message routing using OSI 
Directory Services.  The MHS-DS approach has been successfully tested in a 
number of local environments.  

This INTERNET-DRAFT  describes a proposed Internet Pilot Project that 
seeks to prove the MHS-DS approach on a larger scale.  The results of 
this pilot will then be used to draw up recommendations for a 
global deployment.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhsds-long-bud-intro-02.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.
