Pressure from the Chairman

[Categories: A.5;
RFC's obsoleted: none;
RFC's updated: 107]

It is time to set serious schedules for the implementation of NCP's and
Telnets. To facilitate matters, John Heafner of Rand has agreed to
monitor each site's progress and test its implementation.

Network Liaison Contacts are hereby responsible for preparing a schedule
for implementation and informing John. Such a schedule must include
dates of

(a) implementation of an NCP according to the specifications in Document #1 as modified by RFC #107;

(b) implementation of a user-Telnet which enables local users to login to foreign Hosts;

(c) implementation of a server-Telnet which enables foreign users to login on your Host;

(d) documentation of the mechanism for connecting to and logging in to your Host;

(e) documentation of the mechanism for obtaining job numbers, passwords, etc. to your Host;

(f) documentation of the services available on your Host; and

(e) regular operation at advertised hours.

[Page 1]

John is hereby responsible for prodding Host teams to prodcue the
requisite schedule, software and documentation; for testing out the
advertised implementations; and for probing and understanding the
reasons for unseemly delays. Concomitantly, John is now the right
person to complain to about ambiguities, insufficiencies and
misunderstandings of the protocols.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Steve Crocker
