Subject: Protocol Action: 'RFC3627 to Historic status' to Informational RFC (draft-ietf-6man-3627-historic-01.txt)
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'RFC3627 to Historic status'
(draft-ietf-6man-3627-historic-01.txt) as an Informational RFC
This document is the product of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group.
The IESG contact persons are Jari Arkko and Ralph Droms.

This document moves RFC3627 (Use of /127 Prefix Length Between
Routers Considered Harmful) to HISTORIC status to reflect the
updated guidance contained in RFC6164 (Using 127-Bit IPv6
Prefixes on Inter-Router Links). While a standards track
document already supersedes an informational document and
therefore RFC6164 is the appropriate guidance to follow when the
two documents are in conflict, this links the two documents so
that it is clearer that the IETF has updated guidance on the
Working Group Summary
This document was reviewed by the 6man WG and represents the
consensus of the group.
This document formally moves RFC 3627 to Historic given the
existence and use of RFC 6164.
Brian Haberman is the Document Shepherd and Jari Arkko is the
responsible Area Director.
