The Datatracker Development Project

These are the project pages of the Datatracker Development Project.

The IETF Datatracker is to a large extent a community effort -- while a number of feature sets have been written on contract, major effort have been put in over the years by the members of the community, and has resulted in pushing the coverage and refinement of the datatracker forward in many areas. The easiest way to get involved is to participate in the Code Sprints.

(For more information about this, please look at the edit history of this page.)

The datatracker code is available through an SVN repository which you can browse using the 'Browse Source' menu entry above. Code checkout instructions are available on the CodeRepository page.

During 2012, we completed a major transition from an old to a new database schema, and the contractor that did that work is now working on removing the shim layer we put in place in order to accomplish that transition, and re-writing all pages to access the database directly instead of through the shim layer.

At this time (February 2013) Datatracker development is happening on several fronts:

  • During code sprints (see below) IETFers get the chance to scratch their own particular itches, which has contributed a number of features and fixes over the last couple of years.
  • Major Functionality enhancements are accomplished by first developing specification drafts, see DatatrackerDrafts; which are then implemented by contractors. (If you are a contractor, please check the ContractorInstructions.

Other Tools

Other tools than the database, standalone or otherwise, are listed on https://tools.ietf.org/. The IETF has no requirements on a tool's licence, but sometimes has LicensingPreferences.
