RFC process

Underlay RFC draft. Extends 0.


RFC headers should provide context: authorship, date, scope, status.
RFCs should include references to sources and other drafts and RFCs.


Underlay RFCs describe components and ideas related to the Underlay Project. The minimum length of a draft RFC is one sentence. They may be no more than a note, and can propose ideas, challenges, or solutions, present a related body of work, or invite feedback.

Short ideas, or those in active development, may be better discussed on a public forum while being revised.
