Working Group,

The series of RFC for the new RFC format has been published.


-------- Forwarded Message --------
Subject: 	The RFC Format docs are now RFCs

Hello all,

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!
