Network Working Group						S. Crocker

			DOCUMENTATION CONVENTIONS



This note is a revision of NWG/RFC 10 and 16.

The Network Working Group consists of interested people from existing or
potential ARPA network sites.  Membership is not closed.

The Network Working Group (NWG) is concerned with the HOST software,
the strategies for using the network, and initial experience with the
network.

Documentation of the NWG's effort is through notes such as this.  Notes
may be produced at any site by 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 Comnments: X" (X underscored)
	      where X is a serial number.  Serial numbers are
	      assigned by Steve Crocker at UCLA.

	2.  Author and affiliation

	3.  Date

	4.  Title
	    The title need not be unique.

One copy only will be sent from the author's site to:

	1.  Abhai Bhushan, MIT
	2.  Steve Carr, Utah
	3.  Jerry Cole, SDC
