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.
RFC-303 is titled “ARPA Network Mailing Lists”. It's dated March 3, 1972 and authored (presumably) by Jeanne North of the SRI NIC.
The technical content
This RFC updates RFC-300, and consists of three different distribution list for documents related to ARPANET. As in RFC-300, RFC-211, and RFC-168, List A is essentially the critical sites that need information as soon as possible, and lists B and C are for secondary sites.
