             List of Internet Official Protocol Standards:
                     Replaced by an Online Database


   This document obsoletes RFC 5000 ("Internet Official Protocol
   Standards"), which contained a snapshot of the Standards Track
   documents as of May 2008, and moves RFC 5000 to Historic.  This
   document also retires the subseries identifier STD 1, which has
   previously been associated with publications of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standrds".

Internet-Draft               Retiring STD 1                 January 2013

1.  Introduction

   [RFC1083], published in December 1988, was the first document
   published in the RFC series that detailed a "list of documents that
   define the standards for the Internet protocol suite" and any ongoing
   experiments.  Snapshots were published on a periodic basis.
   [RFC1280] was the first of these publications to be published as STD
   1.  [RFC5000], published in May 2008, was the last snapshot
   documented in an RFC.  This document obsoletes the RFC 5000, moves
   RFC 5000 to Historic, and retires the subseries identifier STD 1.
   Additionally, RFC numbers typically reserved for these documents
   (i.e., those numbers ending with 00) are available for assignment to
   other RFCs-to-be.

2. Obsoleting RFC 5000 and Moving It to Historic

   Previously, publishing a snapshot of the current list of Standards
   Track and Experimental documents was helfpul to the Internet
   community, as the information was not available otherwise.  However,
   in 2000, the RFC Editor produced an online list that is dynamically
   updated and available to individuals with access to the public
   Internet.  As the list has been online for over 10 years, it is time
   to make the online list more official, and formally obsolete RFC

3. Retiring STD 1

   In some sense, STD 1 was retired when RFC 5000 was published.  After
   consultation with the IAB, RFC 5000 was published as an Informational
   document, but was still identified as STD 1 in the document header.
   The status was listed as Informational, as the document does not
   describe an implementable Standard.  However, it was associated with
   STD 1 to keep the document consisent with it's historic connection to
   the subseries identifier.

   This document formally retires STD 1.  Identifier STD 1 will not be
   re-used unless there is a future need to publish periodic snapshots
   of the Standards Track documents (i.e., unless the documentation is

4. Cleaning Up RFC Editor Data

   As part of the cleanup related to retiring the publication of the
   Official Protocol Standards, the RFC Editor will mark a number of
   unused numbers ending in 00 through RFC 6800 "never issued".  Moving
   forward, other numbers typically reserved for these documents (i.e.,
   those numbers ending with 00) will be assigned to future RFCs-to-be.

Internet-Draft               Retiring STD 1                 January 2013

   The RFC Editor's STD index will also be updated accordingly to note
   that STD has been retired.

5.  IANA Considerations

   This document does not request any IANA actions.
