The Network News Transport Protocol has been in use in the
Internet for a decade and remains one of the most popular
protocols (by volume) in use today. This document is a
replacement for RFC 977 and officially updates the protocol
specification. It clarifies some vagueness in RFC 977,
includes some new base functionality and provides a specific
mechanism to add standardized extensions to NNTP.

Send a message to:	mailserv at ds.internic.net.  In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-nntpext-base-01.txt".
NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
