Hi all,

To help authors create References sections, the rfc-editor.org website 
provides links to bibliographic information in three different formats: 
text, BibTeX, and XML (also known as BibXML). These links can be found 
on each RFC's info page. For example, please see the line "Cite this 
RFC: TXT | XML | BibTeX" on [1].

The links to BibXML files were updated in August 2022 to point to 
bib.ietf.org, which is the IETF's bibliographic database, rather than 
rfc-editor.org. For example, please see [2].

Now that bib.ietf.org is the source of BibXML files, the rfc-editor.org 
website will stop serving BibXML files on 21 June 2023. Please use 
bib.ietf.org for BibXML files. For details on using BibXML files in 
References sections, please see [3].

Best regards,

Jean Mahoney
Associate Director, RFC Production Center
