RFC Editor Queue

These drafts are essentially done. Any changes at this point will most likely be editorial, not normative. However, no promises here.

IETF Last Call

These drafts have been through Work Group and Chair review, and have been presented to the IETF community at large for comments.

Work Group Drafts

These drafts are an attempt to collect the work group's collective wisdom on a topic. They may change radically from draft version to draft version.

Individual Drafts

Individual Drafts have no standing in the IETF. They are not standards documents, nor are they products of the IETF, nor is there necessarily any plan to take any given Individual Draft and publish it as a standards track document. However, concepts in Individual Drafts sometimes get worked into standards documents. Occasionaly, they are the basis for standards publications and work group items.
We strongly urge you to review RFC2026/BCP09 for a full description on what is, and what is not, a standards document.

The appearance of these files on this web site does NOT constitute publication by the IETF or the mediactrl interest group. We offer these files for your convenience only. The workgroup status page (above) has the current drafts and status.
