This documentation has been initially maintained by the RFC-Gnutella Team. A first draft was written by Tor Klingberg and Raphael Manfredi. The current draft is mainly a reorganization of the first draft, with few modifications of its content.
The RFC has been maintained by Mathias Bollaert in 2003/2004. He wrote new sections 2.1, 188.8.131.52, 3.1, 3.6, 3.9.2 and did slight modifications of the other parts of the documentation. The current structure of the document (the Table of Content) was proposed by Martin Engbers. Jared lash helped as a rereader and corrected a lot of spelling errors.
