(This is the real-time markdown collaboration tool that is best known under its previous, now commercial name: hackmd.  It doesn’t do rfc-markdown right away, but often the ability to use snippets of markdown as editable material in a meeting is quite useful.  The tool even has a slide show mode!)

Great news!  Thank you.

Those that want to try this in various settings: There is a little pop-down in the right hand side of the tool that starts out with “editable — signed-in people can edit”.  In the long run, that may be the right setting, but until everyone has a datatracker account and gets used to using it, “freely — anyone can edit” may be the right, low-threshold setting during a meeting.


to get an overview of what can be in these notes, and maybe

to see some of that in action (upcoming ASDF BOF, maybe), and

for how that later looks in the I-D or RFC...

Grüße, Carsten
