Parent issue: RFC Style Guide update
Specific issue: RFC Document Style Guide update (9)
Size (time): 6-18 months Importance/Urgency: High/Medium
Problem Statement: The RFC Editor is responsible for making sure the overall RFC Series uses a consistent format and style. The Style Guide (linked to from the RFC Editor website at http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc-style-guide/rfc-style) documents the style conventions currently in use by the series and stalled in publishing an update over two years ago.
By remaining as an expired Internet Draft, the direction provided by the Style Guide is compromised, leaving authors and editors without clear guidance.
There will be some particular areas of controversy in bringing the Style Guide up to date (where “up to date” means “meet the current needs of the community”).
