Results and analysis of the survey of I-D authors on formats and tools

4 Feb 2021

In October-November 2020 the IETF Administration LLC ran a survey of I-D authors on the formats and tools that they use. The results of this survey are now available.

This survey was issued to a total of 6037 email addresses, with that list built from the addresses of everyone who submitted an I-D, or was listed as an author, in the five years previous.  718 responses were received, giving a margin of error of +/- 3.43%. We wish to thank all of you that took the time to reply to this survey.

The IETF Executive Director and Temporary RFC Series Project Manager have produced a detailed report of analysis and recommendations. This report contains 13 recommendations for the future development of authoring tools that are currently being addressed through a range of channels.

The raw results of this survey without the analysis and recommendations are available as an interactive dashboard
