The RFC Editor performs a number of functions that may be carried out
by various persons or entities. The RFC Editor model presented in
this document divides the responsibilities for the RFC Series into
four functions: The RFC Series Editor, the Independent Submission
Editor, the RFC Production Center, and the RFC Publisher. It also
introduces the RFC Series Advisory Group and an (optional)
Independent Submission Stream Editorial Board. The model outlined
here is intended to increase flexibility and operational support
options, provide for the orderly succession of the RFC Editor, and
ensure the continuity of the RFC series, while maintaining RFC
quality and timely processing, ensuring document accessibility,
reducing costs, and increasing cost transparency. This memo
