Abstract

   The use of GitHub in IETF working group processes is increasing.
   This document describes possible uses and conventions for working
   groups which are considering starting to use GitHub.  It does not
   mandate any processes, and does not require changes to the processes
   used by current and future working groups not using GitHub.

   Discussion of this document takes place on the ietf-and-github
   mailing list (ietf-and-github@ietf.org), which is archived at
   <https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/search?email_list=ietf-and-
   github>.

1.  Introduction

   Many IETF working groups and participants make use of GitHub in
   different ways as part of their work on IETF documents.  Some others
   are interested in having their working groups use GitHub to
   facilitate the development of working group documents, but they are
   unfamiliar with how to get started or they are unclear about which
   conventions to follow.  Some other working groups use or plan to use
   other code repository services such as GitLab and Bitbucket, which
   have different properties than GitHub.

   This document proposes a set of administrative processes and
   conventions for IETF working groups to use if they choose as a
   working group to use GitHub to facilitate their work.  The proposals
   in this document are not directed at working groups or individuals
   that are already using GitHub to do IETF work.  Practices vary among
   existing working groups and some of them are not consistent with the
   conventions proposed here: that is fine.  The goal of the proposals
   in this document is not to require uniformity in current practice,
   but to help working groups get started using GitHub in a uniform way
   if desired.
