Character MIB (CHARMIB) Charter


Mailing List Information

Description of Working Group

The Character MIB Working Group is chartered to prepare a recommendation to the IESG evaluating RFCs 1316-1318 (the Character MIBs) with respect to the standards track.

The recommendation will document implementation, interoperability, and deployment experience. If these experiences suggest that changes should be made to the documents, new drafts may be prepared. The recommendation will report one of four outcomes for each RFC:

- That the RFC should be advanced from Proposed to Draft Standard status, without changes (if no problems are found);

- That a draft prepared by the working group should replace the RFC, and be designated a Draft Standard (if only minor changes are made);

- That a draft prepared by the working group should replace the RFC, and be designated a Proposed Standard (if major changes or feature enhancements are made); or,

- That the RFC should be designated as Historic (if this technology is problematic).
