RFC (Request for Comments) documents are a series of technical and
organizational notes about the Internet. They are edited by the
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
This is a metapackage that pulls in the new doc-rfc-xxx packages
(those that most closely correspond to the old doc-rfc package).
It can be removed if users want just a subset of the RFCs.

* Spelling fix (closes: #124559).

to clear this up, be my guest.
Also adjusted copyright file (closes: #92810).
* Bump Standard-Version.
* resynced rules with a current dh-make
* redesigned doc-base handling via /usr/lib/doc-rfc/register-doc-rfc-docs
(closes: #111218, #111788, #114754, #115021, #141149, #163824, #181884)
* various small tweaks, such as allowing for RFC 17a
