>IETF Overview
>
>
>
>The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) provides a forum for working
>groups to coordinate technical developments of new protocols.  Its most
>important function is the development and selection of standards within
>the Internet protocol suite.
>
>The IETF began in January 1986 as a forum for technical coordination by
>contractors for the then US Defense Advanced Projects Agency (DARPA),
>working on the ARPANET, US Defense Data Network (DDN), and the Internet
>core gateway system.  Since that time, the IETF has grown into a large
>open international community of network designers, operators, vendors,
>and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet
>architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.
>
>The IETF mission includes:
>
>
>  1.Identifying and proposing solutions to pressing operational and
>    technical problems in the Internet;
>
>  2.Specifying the development or usage of protocols and the near-term
>    architecture, to solve technical problems for the Internet;
>
>  3.Facilitating technology transfer from the Internet Research Task
>    Force (IRTF) to the wider Internet community; and
>
>  4.Providing a forum for the exchange of relevant information within
>    the Internet community between vendors, users, researchers, agency
>    contractors, and network managers.
>
>
>Technical activity on any specific topic in the IETF is addressed within
>working groups.  All working groups are organized roughly by function
>into nine areas.  Each is led by one or more area directors who have
>primary responsibility for that one area of IETF activity.  Together
>with the Chair of the IETF/IESG, these technical directors compose the
>Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG).
>
>The current areas and directors which compose the IESG are:

>reporting, and an open IESG meeting.  A Proceedings of each IETF plenary
>is published, which includes reports from each area, each working group,
>and each technical presentation.  The Proceedings include a summary of
>all current standardization activities.

>Meeting reports, charters (which include the working group mailing
