Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, 6man mailing list <email@example.com>, 6man chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> 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. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-6man-3627-historic/
Technical Summary 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 matter. Working Group Summary This document was reviewed by the 6man WG and represents the consensus of the group. Document Quality This document formally moves RFC 3627 to Historic given the existence and use of RFC 6164. Personnel Brian Haberman is the Document Shepherd and Jari Arkko is the responsible Area Director.
