Multics Administrative Bulletins Index

Multics Administrative Bulletins (MABs) were organizational notes produced by project members and circulated to everone on the team. They mostly contained the policies and procedures for developers.

There were at least 63 MABs, some revised multiple times, produced in the 1970s and 1980s. Many are lost, and we do not have a complete table of contents. This is a listing of the documents we know of: some are online and a few more have been scanned by MHP but are not yet online.
