The IETF Tools Team members and the team leader are appointed by the General Area Director. The tools team develops tools to support all aspects of the work of the IETF. The team investigates open source tools that can help IETF participants work together more efficiently. When no tools are available, the Tools Team designs, develops, and maintains custom tools. Whenever possible, standards-based solutions are greatly preferred.
