                       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.

1.  Introduction

   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].

   The Datatracker is used to report on the status of I-Ds that have
   been submitted to the IESG for evaluation and publication.  The
   Datatracker will be extended, according to the requirements defined
   in [RFC6174] and [RFC6322], to include tracking information about a
   document during its progression from version -00 to it being
   requested for IESG evaluation.  However, the Datatracker, ICANN
   (performing the IANA function), and RFC Editor operate on separate
   systems with varying degrees of visibility into the processing that
   takes place once the stream managers have approved a document for
