Abstract

Approximately 212 RFCs so far, starting with RFC 269, contain the terms `foo', `bar', or `foobar' as metasyntactic variables without any proper explanation or definition. This document rectifies that deficiency. This memo provides information for the Internet community.


For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 4844.
