Datatracker Extensions to
Include IANA and RFC Editor Processing Information
This document captures the requirements for integrating IANA and RFC
Editor state information into the Datatracker to provide the
community with a unified tool to track the status of their document
as it progresses from Internet-Draft (I-D) version -00 to RFC.
Extending the Datatracker to hold document data from I-D version -00
to RFC allows for increased automation between the Datatracker, IANA,
and RFC Editor, thus reducing manual labor, processing errors, and
potential delay. Therefore, this document also describes the
requirements to make such automation possible.

The IETF Datatracker is a web-based system for managing information
about Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) and RFCs, IPR disclosures, liaison
statements, and several other important aspects of the document
process [IDTRACKER]. In this document, the term "IETF Datatracker"
is used as a generic name for the existing tool used to track state
changes as Internet-Drafts are processed. The word "IETF" in the
name "IETF Datatracker" is not meant to limit use of the tool to the
IETF document stream; this document expands use of the tool to the
other streams described in [RFC4844].
The Datatracker is used to report on the status of I-Ds that have
been submitted to the IESG for evaluation and publication. The
Datatracker will be extended, according to the requirements defined
in [RFC6174] and [RFC6322], to include tracking information about a
document during its progression from version -00 to it being
requested for IESG evaluation. However, the Datatracker, ICANN
(performing the IANA function), and RFC Editor operate on separate
systems with varying degrees of visibility into the processing that
takes place once the stream managers have approved a document for
