Errata ID: 2747
Status: Rejected

Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section header says:

It should say:

Obsoleted by: 4941


The "Obsoleted by" note is missing from the header, so by itself the RFC seems not to be obsolete.

Generally, the text versions of RFCs do not include post-publication metadata (such as "Obsoleted by" or "Updated by") because this data was not available upon publication, and RFCs do not change after publication.

Post-publication metadata is available in these primary locations:
- RFC search results (http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfcsearch.html)
- RFC info pages
- RFC index (http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc-index.html)

For this specific RFC, this information is available on all of them:
- RFC search result
- RFC info page (http://www.rfc-editor.org/info/rfc3041)
- RFC index

In addition there are HTML versions of RFCs available via tools.ietf.org; they are not maintained by the RFC Editor. They include an added header in a gray box, which shows post-publication metadata. In this case, the HTML version of RFC 3041 includes the data.
