IETF Monthly Status Reports

Internet Monthly Reports (IMRs) were the vehicle used to communicate to the Internet Research Group the accomplishments, milestones reached, or problems discovered by the participating organizations. These reports were crucial in the early development days of the Internet as they consolidated all the efforts of the many different groups working on the continued development and enhancement of the Internet. The compilation and distribution of IMRs ceased as of January, 1999.
