7.3.2. Drafts

Drafts can be found at To locate the latest version of a draft, refer to You can enter the draft name without a version number, and the most current version will come up. If a draft does not show up, it was either deleted or published as an RFC. Alternatively, you can go to the new Internet drafts database interface at is also a very useful site. More information on the process of standardization, RFCs, and drafts can be found in Appendix A.
