RFC as EPUB?

I have started creating creating EPUB ebooks from the HTML files at https://tools.ietf.org/html/, mainly for personal use.

Although these documents are publicly available I do not know whether they would be appropriate to post here.

Hence I'd like to ask for your opinion before I upload any RFC in EPUB format.

Regards,

Mathias

Do you know under which licence these documents are published? If their distribution is not prohibited but permitted then there should be no problem to upload them here.

the TAO says:

IETF standards belong to the community, not to their authors. But authorship is recognized and valued, as are lesser contributions than full authorship.

It looks like these are owned by the community and are not otherwise encumbered by any licensing.

The Internet Society does have a statement on Creative commons license. See http://www.internetsociety.org/get-i...ng-our-content

As far as I understand (I am no native english reader/writer/listener/speaker), it may be distributed as long as the following notice is left is not removed from the text.

"Copyright (C) The Internet Society (1998). All Rights Reserved.

This document and translations of it may be copied and furnished to
others, and derivative works that comment on or otherwise explain it
or assist in its implementation may be prepared, copied, published
and distributed, in whole or in part, without restriction of any
kind, provided that the above copyright notice and this paragraph
are included on all such copies and derivative works. However, this
document itself may not be modified in any way, such as by removing
the copyright notice or references to the Internet Society or other
Internet organizations, except as needed for the purpose of
developing Internet standards in which case the procedures for
copyrights defined in the Internet Standards process must be
followed, or as required to translate it into languages other than
English.

The limited permissions granted above are perpetual and will not be
revoked by the Internet Society or its successors or assigns."

So far I changed only some HTML tags that epubcheck deemed not to be appropriate for EPUB.
