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 a July 22, 2004 snapshot of the
   current official protocol standards list and the Best Current
   Practice 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 - 3.7 of this
   memo contain the lists of protocols in each stage of standardization
   - Standard, Draft Standard, Proposed Standard, Experimental, as well
   as Best Current Practice documents.  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 and Historic RFCs are not included.
   This memo lists the current standards track, Best Current Practice,
   and Experimental protocols; it is not a complete index to RFCs.
