Well, It looks like your 1999 VERP ESMTP add-on has been well-received and widely implemented. Great work! Would you be interested in updating it? Does posting the nroff source suggest you wish to pass it on?

I didn't know if someone was already working on the updated draft, or not, and might find my old work useful. If so, that's fine; otherwise I can certainly spend some time working on this.

Others here can tell you better, XML2RFC appears to the current official IETF tool for I-D submissions. It gets all the IETF process related stuff prepared for you, including new legalese stuff.

Maybe the nroff source can be used as input to XML2RFC where you can use the outliner/editor to output IETF I-D submission ready-file formats. There is also new GitHub work going to help with collaboration and version control. Your email address was found at your github page, so I thought GitHub work may interest you.

Took a brief look at the xml2rfc page, I can work with that. It shouldn't be difficult to convert my old nroff source to XML. Is there a standalone tool to generate HTML or text from the XML source, somewhere?

I couldn't quite make out what's going on with ietf-and-github, but, in general, I can collaborate via github too.

For now, I'll take my nroff source and convert it to XML, then figure out what to do next.
