See below the announcement of draft-lafon-rfc2616bis-00.

We've heard that many implementers would like to see a revision of 
RFC2616. To facilitate that, we've created a version of it using 
xml2rfc, so that people can verify that it's equivalent, and therefore 
suitable as a base for further work.

Apart from minor formatting changes, it should not contain any 
significant changes to the original spec text. We have posted diffs at 
for review.

Also, it has been brought to our attention that we neglected to mark 
ourselves as editors in this draft, and that the original authors of the 
specification aren't noted as prominently in the back section as they 
should be. We apologize for this, and will attempt to correct this in 
the next draft (within the limitations of the IETF ID format).

Best regards,

Julian & Yves
