A discussion of the standardization process and the RFC document series is presented first, followed by an explanation of the terms. Sections 6.2 - 6.10 contain the lists of protocols in each stage of standardization. Finally, there are pointers to references and contacts for further information.

This memo is intended to be issued every one hundred RFCs; please be sure the copy you are reading is current. Current copies may be obtained from the Requests for Comments Editor (RFC-EDITOR) or from the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) (see the contact information at the end of this memo).

See Section 6.1 for a description of recent changes. In the official lists in sections 6.2 - 6.10, an asterisk (*) next to a protocol denotes that it is new to this document or has been moved from one protocol level to another, or differs from the previous edition of this document.
