IETF-Specific Features

This Trac installation has a few IETF-specific features which are not generally found in Trac:

  • Occurences of RFC numbers or draft names in Wiki text will generate links to the RFC or draft in question. Unless you want to point to an RFC or draft in a specific location which is different from the automatically generated link, you don't need to explicitly add links for RFCs and drafts.
  • Each issue in the issue tracker can be indicated to concern a 'component'. This is a standard Trac feature; however, the list of available components is automatically updated to include all the active working group drafts. This makes it easier to associate issues with drafts for the WG participants, without the Chairs needing to go in as admin users and add a new component each time there's a new WG draft.
  • The 'Severity' field of an issue has a special significance if the issue type is set to 'state' or 'task'. In that case, the Severity will be shown as an annotation to the draft state on the regular WG status page on This can be useful for WG chairs to indicate more exactly the state of a WG draft, which will otherwise simply be indicated as 'Active' on the status page, until it is sent to the IESG for processing.
  • If issues are registered against a draft ,indicated by setting the issue's 'component' field to the appropriate (abbreviated) draft name, the status page will show a progress bar, indicating the total number of issues for that draft, as well as the proportion which have been closed, and the number of still open issues.
