Okay. I'm confused.

Are RFCs issued by a group leader, or anyone who feels like? Are RFCs the
final considered opinion on an issue, or are they the initial thoughts?
How, when, and by whom are they updated?

As the saying goes, if you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you
teach him to grep for fish, he'll leave you alone all weekend. If you
encourage him to beg for fish, pretty soon c.l.p.misc will smell like a
three-week-dead trout.-- Tom Phoenix, c.l.p.misc.
