Summary: Ready. 


This informational document which obsoletes RFC 3778 provides an overview of the PDF format and updates the media type registration of “application/pdf” by aligning it with RFC 6838. I am no expert in application formats, but the document
 seems to be well informed and clearly written. A couple of nits generate id-nits warnings (updating RFC 3778 is not mentioned in the Abstract, one unused reference) that can be easily fixed during the RFC Editor processing.
