 Cut and paste might be the right answer here, despite some people’s concerns. ​ We won’t find a solution that’s good for all the major use cases (I-Ds, RFCs, other SDOs). ​ There will always be two kinds of things that we can’t cover, including things like journal articles that we won’t generate automatically. ​ People will need to be able to add these by hand.  Also, SDOs for which we do not have coverage for currently. ​ In those cases, we want the doc author to be able to enter a properly formatted reference in some way.  If we want to try and do some help, we should do it in fewer not more ways (which is against where we were last week). ​ Last week we’d talked about focusing on including from a list or the web.  ​ Cut and paste might be the right answer here, despite some people’s concerns. ​ We won’t find a solution that’s good for all the major use cases (I-Ds, RFCs, other SDOs). ​ There will always be two kinds of things that we can’t cover, including things like journal articles that we won’t generate automatically. ​ People will need to be able to add these by hand.  Also, SDOs for which we do not have coverage for currently. ​ In those cases, we want the doc author to be able to enter a properly formatted reference in some way.  If we want to try and do some help, we should do it in fewer not more ways (which is against where we were last week). ​ Last week we’d talked about focusing on including from a list or the web.  ​
