Abstract

   The RFC Editor model described in this document divides the
   responsibilities for the RFC Series into three functions: the RFC
   Series Editor, the RFC Production Center, and the RFC Publisher.
   Internet Architecture Board (IAB) oversight via the RFC Series
   Oversight Committee (RSOC) is described, as is the relationship
   between the IETF Administration Limited Liability Corporation Board
   and the RSOC.  This document reflects the experience gained with "RFC
   Editor Model (Version 1)", documented in RFC 5620; and obsoletes RFC
   6635 to replace all references to the IASA and related structures
   with those defined by the IASA 2.0 Model.
