Housley Informational [Page 1]RFC 6360 Conclusion of FYI RFC Sub-Series August 20111. Background
The For Your Information (FYI) sub-series of RFCs was established by
RFC 1150 [RFC1150] in 1990 for use by the IETF User Services Area,
which has not met since IETF 53 held in March 2001. This RFC sub-
series was designed to provide Internet users with a repository of
information regarding the Internet that might be interesting to a
wide range of people.
The publication of RFC 1150 [RFC1150] introduced the FYI sub-series
of RFCs. Since that time, a total of 38 FYI numbers have been
assigned. Many other Informational RFCs have been published that are
not part of the FYI sub-series.
The list of documents in the FYI sub-series can be found on the RFC
Editor web site [INDEX].
2. Conclusion of the FYI Sub-Series
The IESG does not intend to make any further additions to the FYI
sub-series. The IESG intends to continue to produce Informational
RFCs, but none of them will be assigned an FYI number.
All published RFCs that are currently part of the FYI sub-series will
retain their FYI numbers. The FYI numbers continue to provide
reference points for these documents, and the FYI number can be used
in citations to these documents.
If a future RFC is published that obsoletes an existing member of the
FYI sub-series, the new RFC will not be assigned an FYI number.
3. RFC 1150 Moved to Historic
This document moves RFC 1150 [RFC1150] to Historic. The procedural
information in RFC 1150 is no longer valid. If it becomes desirable
to make additions to the FYI sub-series in the future, new procedures
can be developed to replace this document.
4. Security Considerations
No Internet security issues are anticipated by the actions described
in this document.
