Mailing Lists, Newsgroups, and the Web
Only OSF members are allowed to subscribe to the email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org mailing lists. There are, however, three newsgroups available to the general public that frequently contain DCE-related posts: comp.soft-sys.dce, comp.client-server, and comp.unix.osf.misc. John Mauney's DCE FAQ containing basic information is posted periodically on these newsgroups. The comp.protocols.kerberos newsgroup deals with Kerberos issues.
The OSF can be contacted via e-mail and also maintains a Web
page. The OSF home page

DCE RFCs are "requests for comments" for ongoing DCE development. They are similar to the Internet RFCs and are a formal way to share ideas with other DCE development partners. These are also available via ftp from machine grabbag.osf.org (Login as dce-rfc, use the password dce-rfc, and look in the directory dce-rfc).
