Technical Summary

    The IETF Datatracker will be enhanced to make it possible for the
    IANA and the RFC Editor to provide more transparency into status
    and progress of documents in their respective queues.

    This document captures the requirements for integrating IANA and
    RFC Editor state information into the Datatracker, providing the
    community with a unified tool to track the status of documents as
    they progress from Internet-Draft (I-D) version -00 to RFC.  One
    goal is to improve transparency to document authors and the whole
    Internet community.  Another goal is to increase automation
    between the Datatracker, IANA, and RFC Editor, thus reducing manual
    labor, processing errors, and potential delay.
