Internet-Draft                Nomcom tools                     June 2012

1.  Introduction

   The IETF Nominations Committee (Nomcom) is a body that selects
   candidates for the open IESG, IAB and IAOC positions.  There is a
   need for a set of tools to aid the Nomcom to operate efficiently.
   This document lays out a few requirements for such a tool

2.  Meta requirement

   There is an existing tool for supporting Nomcom work.  The set of
   requirements specified in this document are mainly enhancement

   otherwise stated all of the current functions of the existing Nomcom
   tool need to be supported in the new tool as well.

      provided by the current Nomcom tool except in the cases where one
      of the requirements specified in this document overrides the
      current behavior.  The current Nomcom tool can be found at the
      following URLs; https://www.ietf.org/group/nomcom/2011/private/
      that displays the Nomcom private parts of the tool and
      https://www.ietf.org/group/nomcom/2011/ that displays the
      community member accessible parts of the tool.

3.  Authentication

   All access to the Nomcom tools needs to be authenticated.  The users
   of the tools may have different privileges based on their role.  The
   tool needs to support at least three levels of access:Community
   member, Nomcom member, Nomcom chair.

   o  AUTH-001: The tool MUST allow the members of the community to
