Based on community discussion, the IAOC has decided to put the XML2RFC RFP
on hold, notify potential bidders of this, and have a community comment
period on the tools-discuss@ietf.org list.  Subscription information can
be found at:

 https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/tools-discuss

The RFP is located at:  

 http://iaoc.ietf.org/rfpsrfis.html 

The comment period will end on March 9.  

Please note that the main goal is to have a supportable xml2rfc tool this
year that works for the current users and provides the functionality of
the current tool with some incremental improvements.  There will be an
opportunity in the future for changes that can not be accommodated in this
phase.
