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.

List management

RFC-363 is titled “ARPA Network Mailing Lists”. It's dated August 8, 1972 and authored (presumably) by Jeanne North of the SRI NIC.

The technical content

This RFC updates RFC-329, and consists of three different distribution list for documents related to ARPANET. As in RFC-329, RFC-303, 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.

A smattering of new sites have been added to the distribution lists since the last edition.
