Request for comment
The REANNZ request for comment (RRFC) process used to be called the KAREN request for comment (KRFC) process, and is a formal open and collaborative mechanism, provided by REANNZ, to allow community contribution and comment on information, standards and policies effecting the network.
Community led development of the network
Launched in 2010, RRFCs are a way through which our members can make proposals that affect the network’s usage, richness, reach, reliability, capacity and scalability.
As enforceable documents, approved and superseded RRFCs are published here. RRFCs that are open for comment are published on the KAREN wiki.
Making or commenting on an RRFC
Visit the KRFC page on the KAREN wiki to find out how to make a RRFC submission. The KAREN Wiki is also used as the tool through which members comment on an open RRFC.
For the full and formal description of the RRFC process see KRFC S-0001.
The following RRFCs are approved and in force.
|KRFC S-0001||REANNZ proposal to create the RFC process to enable community development of standards and policies.|
