RFC Series Advisory Group

The purpose of the RSAG is to provide expert, informed guidance (chiefly to the RSE) in matters affecting the RFC Series operation and development. Such matters include, but are not limited to, issues in operation of the RFC model components, and consideration of additional RFC streams, to give a sense of the range of topics covered. The RSAG will assist the RSE in identifying and leading community discussion of important issues and opportunities facing the RFC Series. The RSAG was created by RFC 5620 in 2009. RFC 6635 ended its formal responsibilities in 2012, but the RSAG continues as an informal group.

The RSAG members are appointed by the RSE. This group is not to be confused with the RFC Series Oversight Committee (RSOC).
