                        DOCUMENTATION CONVENTIONS

The Network Working Group seems to consist of Steve Carr of Utah, Jeff

Rulifson and Bill Duvall at SRI, and Steve Crocker and Gerard Deloche

at UCLA.  Membership is not closed.

The Network Working Group (NWG) is concerned with the HOST software, the

strategies for using the network, and initial experiments with the network.

Documentation of the NWG's effort is through notes such as this.  Notes

may be produced at any site by anybody and included in this series.

CONTENT

The content of a NWG note may be any thought, suggestion, etc. related to

the HOST software or other aspect of the network.  Notes are encouraged to

be timely rather than polished.  Philosophical positions without examples

or other specifics, specific suggestions or implementation techniques

without introductory or background explication, and explicit questions

without any attempted answers are all acceptable.  The minimum length for

a NWG note is one sentence.

These standards (or lack of them) are stated explicitly for two reasons.

First, there is a tendency to view a written statement as ipso facto

authoritative, and we hope to promote the exchange and discussion of

considerably less than authoritative ideas.  Second, there is a natural

hesitancy to publish something unpolished, and we hope to ease this

inhibition.

FORM

Every NWG note should bear the following information:

        1.  "Network Working Group"

            "Request for Comments:" x
