[adding back rfc-editor@rfc-editor.org]

Hi David,

I am quite far removed from the actual operation of the script and the
rfc-editor.org website, so I don't know the answer to your question.  That
said, my understanding is that it's set up with automation that assumes the
script is idempotent, and can regenerate various bits from scratch in
certain cases, so a manual edit might not be very reliable.

-Ben
