As Internet-Drafts are processed, reviews are requested from several review teams. For example, the General Area Review Team (Gen-ART) and the Security Directorate (SecDir) perform reviews of documents that are in IETF Last Call. Gen-ART always performs a follow-up review when the document is scheduled for an IESG Telechat. SecDir usually performs a follow-up review, but the SecDir secretary may choose not to request that follow-up if any issues identified at Last Call are addressed and there are otherwise no major changes to the document. These teams also perform earlier reviews of documents on demand. There are several other teams that perform similar services, often focusing on specific areas of expertise.

                      Tracking Reviews of Documents


   Several review teams ensure specific types of review are performed on    Internet-Drafts as they progress towards becoming RFCs.  The tools    used by these teams to assign and track reviews would benefit from    tighter integration to the Datatracker.  This document discusses    requirements for improving those tools without disrupting current    work flows.
