FTP-related Requests for Comments (RFCs)

Some RFCs are missing; their text has been lost over years. They are just titles not linked to the actual files. For sake of readability 'status' fields has been omitted when it is UNKNOWN. The total size of RFCs listed here is about 1.7 megabytes (uncompressed). I have tried to list all relevant RFCs, even obsolete ones and those which do not directly relate to FTP.
