IETF Author Tools - idnits
The service inspects Internet-Draft (ID) documents for a variety of conditions that should be adjusted to bring the document into line with policies from the IETF, the IETF Trust, and the RFC Editor. The determination of which issues are to be reported is based on:
- Requirements in https://www.ietf.org/id-info/1id-guidelines.txt
- Requirements in https://www.ietf.org/id-info/checklist
- Additional requirements captured from Area Directors (ADs) and authors over time.
- Requirements in https://iaoc.ietf.org/documents/idnits-SOW-00.pdf
