Internet Society Assumes Responsibility for Funding RFC Editor


In an effort to grant the editor of the RFC (Request for Comments) series greater autonomy, the Internet Society assumes sole funding of the editor function, performed at the time by Jon Postel and Joyce Reynolds. Reynolds served as part of the editorial team of the RFC series from 1987 to 2006, and also performed the IANA function with Postel until this was transferred to ICANN. She worked with ICANN in this role until 2001, while remaining an employee of University of Southern California– Information Sciences Institute.
