1.  Introduction

   The IETF Nominations Committee (NomCom) is a body that selects
   candidates for open IESG, IAB, and IAOC positions following the
   process outlined in [RFC3777].  There is a need for a set of tools to
   aid the NomCom in efficient operation.  This document presents a set
   of requirements for such a tool.

1.1.  Conventions Used in This Document

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  Meta Requirement

   There is an existing tool for supporting NomCom work.  The set of
   requirements specified in this document are mainly enhancement
   requirements or behavioral changes to the existing tool.  Unless
   otherwise stated, all of the current functions of the existing NomCom
   tool need to be supported in the new tool as well.

   o  META-001: The tool MUST provide all the functionality that is
      provided by the current NomCom tool, except in cases where a
      requirement specified in this document overrides a current
      behavior.  The current NomCom tool can be found at the following
      URLs: https://www.ietf.org/group/nomcom/2012/private/ displays the
      NomCom private parts of the tool (Private NomCom tool) and
      https://www.ietf.org/group/nomcom/2012/ displays the community
      member accessible parts of the tool (Public NomCom tool).
