The Landfield Group maintains an archive of publicly available
material. The archive is available here as well as via FTP from
following is a sampling of what is available.
The Internet RFC, FYI, STD and BCP documents have been converted to hypertext
to make them easier to read. The archive also supplies search facilities in
order to allow you to look things up quickly.
Documents covering Frequently Asked Questions are posted regularly to Usenet
newsgroups. These documents cover a wide range of topics with over 1000
authors posting more than 3000 different FAQs. In order to make the documents
more useful, the Hypertext FAQ archive has had all appropriate references
hyperlinked. There is also an extensive full text search facility.
If you're looking for an answer to a question, this is a great place to start.

landfield.com is the home of the Usenet moderators archive.
The archive contains tools written and used by moderators of Usenet
newsgroups. Moderation of newsgroups is transcending Usenet as many
organizations begin using Usenet software for internal use.
The contents of this archive have been generously made available in a "AS IS"
condition. Many of the sources, scripts and yes, documents are not as pretty
as the individual moderators may like but they work and are being used. The
idea is that the archive is a snapshot of tools used. They are made available
so that others can see how it is done and potentially get a copy as a starting
point for their newsgroup's required modifications.
The UseFor working group is following up on the work done by Henry Spencer
with "Son-of-RFC1036". The group is extending the Usenet news formats and
is working towards approval of a new Usenet news RFC.
Assistance and information is available to those that wish to write and post
Usenet Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). The faq-maintainers list archives
are also available.
The official and most complete comp.sources.misc archives are available here.
