I've got a few questions regarding the new practice of including
rfc-editor URIs to info pages, and inserting DOIs.
In RFC 7540, I see (<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7540#section-12>):
[RFC2119] Bradner, S., "Key words for use in RFCs to Indicate
Requirement Levels", BCP 14, RFC 2119, DOI 10.17487/
RFC2119, March 1997,
[BCP90] Klyne, G., Nottingham, M., and J. Mogul, "Registration
Procedures for Message Header Fields", BCP 90,
RFC 3864, September 2004,
Both are references to a single-RFC BCP. In one case the info URI points
to the RFC, in the other case to the BCP. Only in one case we see the
Is this intentional?
Is there a rule that a tool can follow to check these? As far as I can
tell, the only difference in the XML is the *name* of the reference,
which is *not* supposed to change the formatting of the reference.
[FIPS186] NIST, "Digital Signature Standard (DSS)", FIPS PUB
186-4, July 2013,
I assume that the missing DOI entry is a mistake?
[TLS12] Dierks, T. and E. Rescorla, "The Transport Layer
Security (TLS) Protocol Version 1.2", RFC 5246,
DOI 10.17487/ RFC5246, August 2008,
Why is there white space in the DOI here?
Best regards, Julian
