IETF Non-WG Mailing Lists

This page attempts to list all the active, publicly visible lists that are considered to be related to the IETF, but are not the main list of any working group, in alphabetical order by list name.

It includes lists that are for discussion of particular topics, lists that have belonged to former working groups but are still active, lists that are specified in the registration rules of some parameter registry as "for review," and others of less clear classification.

Mail sent to all these lists is considered an IETF "Contribution" as defined in RFC 5378, Section 1 (see also the NOTE WELL statement).

Details of adding lists to this page can be found at the bottom of the page.
