from your freshly appointed RFC-4880bis editor.  I talked to dkg on how
to get started and we agreed on taking my existing RFC-4880 version
which I converted to Pandoc/Markdown format some time ago.  Meanwhile I
published two I-D based on this:


This is RFC-4880 with errata 2270, 2271, 2242, 3298 applied and some
editorial notes:

   { This is work in progress to update OpenPGP.  Editorial notes are
   enclosed in curly braces.  The section numbers from RFC4880 are also
   indicated in curly braces. }

The second I-D is:


With these additional changes (cf. Appendix A):

   o  Added Camellia cipher from RFC 5581.

   o  Incorporated RFC 6637 (ECC for OpenPGP)

   I also fixed up a couple of formatting issues in case you wonder
   about the longer diff betwee -00 and -01.  I temporary moved the
   authors of RFC-4880 to an appendix to not annoy them with
   confirmation mails.  I don't know how this is usually handled; thus
   please drop me a note if I shall move you to the authors section now
   and not only in later I-Ds.

The diff between RFC-4880 and -00 can be viewed here:


and the diff between -00 and -01 here:


Please check them so we can get a stable base for our future work.



To get the source you may run

  git clone git://git.gnupg.org/people/wk/rfc4880bis.git

or follow at 


In case anyone sees a problem hosting that under a gnupg address, dkg
will probably be able to publish his repo.  In any case the plan is to
mail diffs.  The above should be considered a clone of my working copy.

To build a new draft you would run

  pandoc2rfc abstract.mkd middle.mkd back.mkd

pandoc2rfc is availabe via https://tools.ietf.org

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
