Title : Author Guidelines for RMT Building Blocks and Protocol
Author(s) : R. Kermode, L. Vicisano
Filename : draft-ietf-rmt-author-guidelines-01.txt
Pages : 13
Date : 06-Mar-01
This document provides general guidelines to assist the authors of
reliable multicast transport (RMT) building block and protocol
instantiation definitions. The purpose of these guidelines is to ensure
that any building block and protocol instantiation definitions produced
contain sufficient information to fully explain their operation and use.
If followed these guidelines will result in clearly defined RMT building
blocks and protocol instantiation definitions that can be refined and
augmented to create new protocols for use in new scenarios for which any
existing protocols were not designed.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
