An RFC is a “Request for Comment” in the same spirit as the IETF RFC but less formal. There are no requirements on the language and structure of an RFC; however, the focus should always be on concrete Avro IDL examples to define the data structures with pseudo-code and/or clear descriptions of data transformations and use cases. Once the team has reached consensus on an RFC, it should be easy to turn the ideas into working code relatively quickly.

All RFCs are open for comment by anyone either via the ADAM mailing list or the comment box in the footer of the specific RFC.
