Title : IETF Problem Statement

This memo summarizes perceived problems in the structure, function
and processes of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). We are
attempting to identify these problems, so that they can be addressed
and corrected by the IETF community.
The problems have been digested and categorized from an extensive
discussion which took place on the 'problem-statement' mailing list
from November 2002 to September 2003. The problem list has been
further analyzed to try and determine the root causes, that are at
the heart of the perceived problems: The result will be used to guide
the next stage of the process in the Problem Statement working group
which is to recommend the structures and processes that will carry
out the corrections.

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
