As described in Section 5 of [RFC4844], there are currently four streams that feed into the RFC publication process: the IETF document stream, the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) document stream, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) document stream, and the Independent Submissions stream that is administered by the Independent Submissions Editor (ISE). Each of these streams consist of Internet-Drafts (often abbreviated "I-Ds") that have been identified by an organization or role as being part of their stream. Each stream maintainer progresses documents towards RFC publication in its own fashion. A document can only be in one stream at a time.

                  Datatracker States and Annotations for            the IAB, IRTF, and Independent Submission Streams


   This document describes extending the IETF Datatracker to capture and    display the progression of Internet-Drafts that are intended to be    published as RFCs by the IAB, IRTF, or Independent Submissions    Editor.  The states and annotations that are to be added to the    Datatracker will be applied to Internet-Drafts as soon as any of    these streams identify the Internet-Draft as a potential eventual    RFC, and will continue through the lifetime of the Internet-Draft.    The goal of adding this information to the Datatracker is to give the    whole Internet community more information about the status of these    Internet-Drafts and the streams from which they originate.
