                                                         4 February 1971

                Distribution of NWG/RFCs Through the NIC


   The Network Information Center (NIC), administered by Doug Engelbart
   at SRI, has established (or is establishing) lines of communication
   with all of the sites.  The mechanism is for each site to have a
   Station Agent and a Technical Liaison Contact.  The Station Agent
   maintains a small library of documents which arrive from the NIC.
   The Technical Liaison Contact matches requests from the network
   community to people or services at his site, and vice versa.

   In my opinion, the current mailing list for the Network Working Group
   seems to duplicate in large part the NIC's distribution system.
   Therefore, I am making the following changes.

(1)  Each site is presumed to have a Technical Liaison Contact.  Where
     none has been appointed, the current receiver of NWG notes for that
     site will be assumed to be the Technical Liaison Contact.  (Each
     site may change its Technical Liaison Contact by notifying the

(2)  NWG notes will be sent only to Technical Liaison Contacts and to
     those on the current mailing list who are not at a site.

(3)  RFC numbers and NIC numbers will continue to be assigned by Jeanne
     North at SRI -- (415) 326-6200, ext. 4119, or use Enterprise

(4)  NWG notes may be sent to the NIC for distribution, or may be
     distributed directly.  If an author intends to distribute an NWG
     note himself, he should so inform Mrs. North and obtain any changes
     to the mailing list.  All mailing should be airmail or first class,
     depending upon distance.

Those on the current mailing list who are not at sites are
