In 2019 I'm reading one RFC a day in chronological order starting from the very first one. More on this project here. There is a table of contents for all my RFC posts.

Requesting handbook information

RFC-268 is titled “Graphics Facilities Information”. It's authored by Jon Postel of UCLA and dated November 24, 1971.

The technical content

During the recent Network Graphics group meeting at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, people suggested that the Resource Notebook (a handbook distibuted to ARPANET users) contain information about the graphics capabilities of each host site.

Postel asks that each site send him this information so that he can include it via the “normal editorial procedures”.
