1.  Overview

   This memo contains a snapshot of the state of standardization of
   protocols used in the Internet, as determined by the Internet
   Engineering Task Force (IETF).  It is an April 17, 2001 snapshot of
   the current official protocol standards list, which is updated daily
   and is available from the RFC Editor Web site.

   The RFC Editor publishes Request for Comments (RFC) documents that
   are the output of the IETF process or are submitted individually via
   electronic mail.  Further information about the RFC series is
   contained in section 2.1, RFC 2026 and at http://www.rfc-editor.org.

   This memo is published by the RFC Editor for the IESG and IAB in
   accordance with Section 2.1 of "The Internet Standards Process --
   Revision 3", RFC 2026, which specifies the rules and procedures by
   which all Internet standards are set.  Sections 3.1 - 3.6 of this
   memo contain the lists of protocols in each stage of standardization
   - Standard, Draft Standard, Proposed Standard, Experimental and
   Historic.  Protocols that are new to this document or have been moved
   from one protocol level to another, or that differ from the previous
   edition of this document are marked with an asterisk.  Informational
   RFCs are not included.  This memo lists the current standards track,
   Experimental, and Historic protocols; it is not a complete index to
   RFCs.
