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].

                        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.
