Specific issue:

Size (time): (1-6, 6-18, 18+ months)

Importance/Urgency:

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.

The current plan is to move forward with a revised Style Guide split in to two forms: an RFC to cover the current accepted policies and guidelines, and a web space that holds new guidelines being tested and items that are expected to undergo regular updates (such as an acronym list).

RSE Actions:

  • collect details on what items belong in the Style Guide and determine which are more appropriate for the web space
  • create initial web space

RSOC Actions:

  • provide direction on whether splitting the Style Guide in to two sections (RFC and web space) is reasonable (*DONE*)
  • provide feedback on content

RFC Production Center & Publisher Actions:

  • provide details of Style Guide related issues to RSE
  • provide feedback on content

Costs/Benefits

Financial:

  • costs of editor time for collation and review of information to be covered under normal operating costs

Project schedules:

  • Started February 2012
  • First draft of webspace due June 2012

Reputation:

Estimated completion date:

  • November 2012
