digraph "Figure 1" {
    IAB -> "Independent Submission Editor";
    "Independent Authors" -> "Independent Submission Editor";
    "Community at Large" -> IAB;
    IAB -> RSOC;
    RSOC -> "RFC Series Editor";
    "Independent Submission Editor" -> "RFC Production Center";
    
    "RFC Publisher" -> "End Users & Readers";
    IAB -> IAB -> "RFC Production Center";
    IRTF -> IRSG -> "RFC Production Center";
    IETF -> IESG -> "RFC Production Center";
    subgraph cluster_rfc_editor {
        "RFC Series Editor" -> "RFC Production Center";
        "RFC Production Center" -> "RFC Publisher";
        label = "RFC Editor";
        style = dotted;
    }
}
