In accordance with the recommendation of the International
Astronomical Union FITS Working Group (IAUFWG) I have requested that
the Internet-Draft with the name
be considered for publication as an Informational RFC.

This Internet-Draft specifies two new top-level MIME media types,
image/fits and application/fits
The shepherd, Scott Hollenbeck, points out the requirement
that IETF-Types be involved.

Please review the content of <draft-allen-fitsmime-00.txt>
and the two media type applications within it.

Thank you.
