The INN FAQ was written by Heiko W. Rupp, the previous maintainers (Tom Limoncelli and Rich Salz,) et al. An appropriate copyright announcement appears at the bottom of each page in the Usenet RKT. I am very grateful for their permission to incorporate the results of their hard work!

Release Notes: In keeping with the RKT design guidelines, the INN FAQ has been split up into over 200 separate files for inclusion in the RKT. (You can find pointers to the plain text versions of the FAQs in INN FAQ Where can I get the latest copy of this FAQ?) But remember you can only get the FAQ links organized by topic and RKT couplings (additions, corrections, links to the FAQ entries) right here at mibsoftware.com.
