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.
