Convert text format RFCs and Internet-Drafts to .xml format
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  in version 0.9.x and 1.x of the tool, and will follow RFC 7991  in version 2.x, which will be released once support is available to process XML sources which follows the RFC 7991 vocabulary.
