Hi there,

Henrik reported on the percentage of drafts that are submitted with the 
XML version; I believe that number is a bit misleading, as long as 
submitting the XML is just additional work with little benefit.

Here's a *different* set of numbers, calculated by looking at specs in 
the AUTH48 state.

RFC4800 - RFC4899: 41
RFC4900 - RFC4999: 38
RFC5000 - RFC5099: 41
RFC5100 - RFC5199: 44
RFC5200 - RFC5299: 47
RFC5300 - RFC5399: 48
RFC5400 - RFC5499: 64
RFC5500 - RFC5599: 59
RFC5600 - RFC5699: 58
RFC5700 - RFC5799: 64
RFC5800 - RFC5899: 63
RFC5900 - RFC5999: 68
RFC6000 - RFC6099: 70
RFC6100 - RFC6199: 59
RFC6200 - RFC6299: 77
RFC6300 - RFC6399: 63
RFC6400 - RFC6499: 66

Notes:

- this includes spec that were not submitted in XML format, but 
converted by the RFC Editor team (maybe Alice or Sandy can estimate how 
frequently this is the case?)

- there may be less than 100 RFCs in each interval, so these only are 
approximately percentages

Best regards, Julian
