This is an automatic notification about a new xml2rfc release, 
v2.25.0, generated when running the mkrelease script.

Release notes:

xml2rfc (2.25.0) ietf; urgency=medium

  This rounds up the remaining known issues raised by the RFC Editor staff.
  Commit log excerpt:

  * Rolled back an earlier requirements change, and added a restriction on 
    pycountry due to a buggy release.

  * Fixed a number of issues with the xml generated for ToC and Index.  This
    makes the ToC output from prepped files the same as from unprepped files,
    which was not the case earlier.

  * Fixed an log() argument error.

  * Modified test input files to silence known issues with legacy rfc xml
    test files, in order to more easily be able to see newly appearing errors.

  * Fixed a string formatting error.  Fixes issue #417.

  * Changed processing progress messages to more consistently obey --quiet, 
    and to be visually distinct from errors and warnings.

  * Modified the PI stripping so as to be able to silence warnings during 
    preptool processing.

  * Added indentation handling for variations of <ol> on request from the
    rfc-editor staff.

  * Moved the check for appropriate <bcp14> content from the text renderer 
    to the preptool, and tweaked it to permit &nbsp;, e.g., 'MUST&nbsp;NOT'.

  * Added a base_url setting to avoid an error message during pdf generation.

  * Added an option --id-reference-base-url to set base url for rendering 
    of <xref> with I-D section references, with a sensible default; and set a 
    default value for --rfc-reference-base-url for <xref> with section= ease of 

  * Tweaked the conditions for a preptool warning about missing docName to 
    only apply in non-rfc mode, and added generation of any missing <link 
    rel='prev'> element from docName if present.

  * Widened the search for seriesInfo elements when handling the 
    --rfc-reference-base-url option, in order to handle all possible 
    placements, and fixed a bug in the creation of target URL when
    using this option.

  * Added a warning for <vspace> elements without proper v3 alternatives 
    during v2v3 conversion.

  * Fixed a bug introduced in [3201] when stabilizing attribute order,
    which could cause errors when running v2v3 conversion with XInclude

  * Changed the code for --info dump to work for both py27 and py3x.

  * The --legacy-list-symbols option was checked for validity before the 
    version attribute of the input file was seen.  Moved this check (and some 
    similar cases) later, in order to permit it to be used with v3 input 
    without giving the --v3 option.  Fixes issue #414.

The preferred way to install xml2rfc is by doing 'pip install xml2rfc',
and 'pip install --upgrade xml2rfc' to upgrade.  If there are system-
installed python modules which pip will not upgrade, you may have to
use 'pip install --upgrade --no-deps xml2rfc' and install dependencies

The new version is also available through SVN checkout, with
  'svn checkout http://svn.tools.ietf.org/svn/tools/xml2rfc/tags/cli/2.25.0'
