The IESG discussed the FYI sub-series today, and there is no support for publication of new documents in this series.

The FYI (For Your Information) sub-series of RFCs was established by RFC 1150.  The FYI sub-series was used by the IETF User Services Area, which has not met since IETF 53.  The IESG does not intend to make any further additions to the FYI sub-series.

The FYI sub-series was designed to provide Internet users with a central repository of Internet information.  Many Informational RFCs have been published that are not part of the FYI sub-series.  The IESG intends to continue publishing Informational RFCs; however, none of them will be assigned a FYI sub-series number.
