Final Charter for Working Group

At the Seattle IETF in March 1994, a BOF was held on the establishment
of a Simple Internet White Pages Service (SIWPS). A basic model was
proposed, and further work was defined. One of the requested work
was a definition of the basic requirements for such a service. This
working group is chartered to produce a single Informational RFC
capturing these basic requirements. It will do so without prejudice
existing solutions or implementations.

The requirements document should only contain the basic requirements
for a SIWPS. The list is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather
provide a set of minimum requirements to guide the overall structure
white pages service effort; these requirements can be used by related
IETF working groups to start to define the Internet white pages

The working group is meant to be short-lived and to produce only the
one document.
