1.  Introduction

   A prominent member of the IETF community has developed a set of tools
   to produce statistics about the authors of RFCs and Internet-Drafts.
   These tools analyze the documents themselves to produce statistics
   about the documents and their authors.  The goal of the IETF
   Datatracker enhancements described in this document is to provide
   similar statistics and ensure that the software is maintained as part
   of the IETF information services.  While some data may still need to
   be extracted from the documents themselves, as much data as possible
   should be maintained in the IETF Datatracker database [DATATRACKER].

   Current statistics are available on the web at
   http://www.arkko.com/tools/docstats.html.

   The code that is used to produce these statistics is available at
   http://www.arkko.com/tools/authorstats.html.

2.  Purpose

   Author statistics allow the community to understand where work is
   being done and by whom.  The statistics make it visible which
   individuals, companies, and geographic regions are the most active
   contributors.  The statistics also show how these are changing over
   the years.

   others are sometimes used to refer to a particular participant's
