Distribution of NWG/RFCs Through the NIC
The Network Information Center (NIC), administered by Doug Engelbart at SRI, has established (or is establishing) lines of communication with all of the sites. The mechanism is for each site to have a Station Agent and a Technical Liaison Contact. The Station Agent maintains a small library of documents which arrive from the NIC. The Technical Liaison Contact matches requests from the network community to people or services at his site, and vice versa.
In my opinion, the current mailing list for the Network Working Group seems to duplicate in large part the NIC's distribution system. Therefore, I am making the following changes.
(1) Each site is presumed to have a Technical Liaison Contact. Where none has been appointed, the current receiver of NWG notes for that site will be assumed to be the Technical Liaison Contact. (Each site may change its Technical Liaison Contact by notifying the NIC.)
(2) NWG notes will be sent only to Technical Liaison Contacts and to those on the current mailing list who are not at a site.
(3) RFC numbers and NIC numbers will continue to be assigned by Jeanne North at SRI -- (415) 326-6200, ext. 4119, or use Enterprise numbers:
BB&N, CASE, HARV, LINC, MAC, CCA Enterprise 0740 ARPA, MITR Enterprise 1-0740 CMU Enterprise 9074 ILL Enterprise 1074 SDC, RAND, UCLA, UCSB, UTAH Zenith 9-0740

(4) NWG notes may be sent to the NIC for distribution, or may be distributed directly. If an author intends to distribute an NWG note himself, he should so inform Mrs. North and obtain any changes to the mailing list. All mailing should be airmail or first class, depending upon distance.
Those on the current mailing list who are not at sites are
