Hi Everybody,

From the maybe-you-didn't-notice department comes this exciting information about RFC formats and formatting. This will probably end up mattering for everyone who authors Internet Drafts, which is many of you. There's plenty of holiday reading for you below. To whet your appetite, this excerpt from the abstract of RFC 7990, "RFC Format Framework" (emphasis mine): 

"the canonical format of the RFC Series will be transitioning from plain-text ASCII to XML using the xml2rfc version 3 vocabulary; different publication formats will be rendered from that base document. With these changes comes an increase in complexity for authors, consumers, and the publisher of RFCs." 

Enjoy!

> The RFC Format requirements documents were published this morning. This represents an enormous amount of work on the part of the RFC Format Design Team, and an enormous amount of patience and feedback from the community. Of course, the work isn't quite done - all of these RFCs will undergo a -bis cycle so we can document the "as built" instead of just the "as proposed." But regardless of the amount of work still to come, this is a big milestone for the project! 
> So, thank you all, and stay tuned for the next steps of code development, testing, and collecting feedback!
