Section 14 says:
Section 14.1 (Normative References): [RFC977] Kantor, B. and P. Lapsley, "Network News Transfer Protocol", RFC 977, February 1986.
It should say:
Section 14.2 (Informative References): [RFC977] Kantor, B. and P. Lapsley, "Network News Transfer Protocol", RFC 977, February 1986.
This Reference should be moved to the Informative References (Section 14.2) because:
* RFC 3977 is published as Proposed Standard, and it has formally obsoleted RFC 977, thus removing it from the Standards track.
* Normative References in a Standards Track RFC must be at a comparable (or higher) level on the IETF Standards Track (or at similar position in other Standards Bodies' scheme).
* All uses of the Ref. tag [RFC977] are non-normative in nature.
