      RFC 1

      • Jari ArkkoIETF Chair

      7 Apr 2015

      Today marks the 46th anniversary of RFC 1.

      This is also an opportunity to reflect on the RFC series and the principles behind it.

      For example, we have had recent work to reconsider the canonical format, aiming to increase the usability of the RFC series and to match the needs of a even wider variety of readers. And of course, broad community input and technical excellence in the RFCs are the things that can help make the Internet work better.

      Today, the RFC series includes more than 7000 documents. Published on the 30th anniversary of RFC 1’s publication, RFC 2555 assembles recollections on the RFC series.

      The RFC series includes many different kinds of documents. Documents coming out of the IETF, documents coming out of the IRTF, independent stream documents, and so on. Not to mention April 1 RFCs, which we again got to enjoy a couple of days ago. Long live the RFC series!
