id2xml 1.0.0-rc1

Convert text format RFCs and Internet-Drafts to .xml format

Latest Version: 1.0.0rc2

This tool, ‘id2xml’, is intended for use by the RFC-Editor staff, in order to produce a first xml2rfc-compatible XML version from text-only Internet-Draft submissions.

id2xml may also be useful for Internet-Draft authors who wish to start working on a new version of an older draft or RFC, for which no xml2rfc-compatible XML source is available.

The releases of the 0.9.x release series are preview releases, with a number of known deficiencies. They are released in order that potential users may provide feedback on the most desired improvements ahead of a 1.0.0 release.

Version 0.9.0 can process the drafts specified in the development Statement of Work to XML files acceptable to xml2rfc, and can also process a number of other test files to acceptable XML. However, adding new drafts to the test set still reveals weaknesses in many cases, so trouble-free processing of any arbitrary draft should not be expected from the 0.9.x series.

The XML produced follows RFC 7749 [1] in version 0.9.x and 1.x of the tool, and will follow RFC 7991 [2] in version 2.x, which will be released once support is available to process XML sources which follows the RFC 7991 vocabulary.
