Github template for drafts

I've been using github for managing my drafts for a while now.  Github
has been particularly successful in attracting and managing some
fairly broad collaboration in HTTP/2, and several other working groups
are now successfully using the model.

I've prepared a template that makes putting a repository together
extremely simple:

  https://github.com/martinthomson/i-d-template

This has now been used successfully by several people, some of whom
had no background in this at all.  Now I'm sharing this more widely,
since it seems to be pretty stable.

A feature of note is that it can integrate with a continuous
integration system, so you can't bust a draft without noticing
quickly.  It can also automatically generate a nice web page, e.g.,
https://unicorn-wg.github.io/sslv3-diediedie/

And it's on github, so of course it's open to new contributions.

'edit shepherds document' link failure?

Say from this example:
  <http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-idr-as-migration/>

clicking on the little pencil by 'Shepherd Write-Up:' which is:

<http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-idr-as-migration/shepherdwriteup/?

and ... I get the empty shepherds document page with 'edit', clicking on
'edit' gets me:

"The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete
your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a
script used to generate the requested page. In case this was an overload
problem or other temporary error, you may want to try again in a little
while.

A failure report with details about what happened has been sent to the
server administrators. It would be helpful if you would file a bug
report with additional information at the IETF database issue tracker, too"

guess it's back to the oldschool email-iesg-secretary path?

reply button on ietf mail archive

Hi,

For each archived message, could there be a button so that one could "reply" to a posted message? I don't keep
all mailing list messages, and sometimes I need to go back to an archived one and reply to it. Currently
there is no convenient way to do it.

I suppose this is not an uncommon situation people may run into. How do you deal with it?

Thanks.
Jeffrey

google thinks etherpad is phising


Several people (nomcom call yesterday, 6tisch security team this morning)
get this in the past day from etherpad.tools.ietf.org:
        http://www.sandelman.ca/tmp/mcrcapture/6969.2014-10-28/capture1.png

specifically, a warning that the site is a phising site.

I expect that it's a false positive, but in order to get the details, you
have to connect to the Google web site manager portal to find out.

datatracker links to other formats


The datatracker has links to other versions:
  Other versions:	plain text, xml, pdf, html

which links to (for instance):
http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-irtf-nmrg-an-gap-analysis-02.txt
http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-irtf-nmrg-an-gap-analysis-02.xml
http://tools.ietf.org/pdf/draft-irtf-nmrg-an-gap-analysis-02.pdf
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-irtf-nmrg-an-gap-analysis-02

The last link goes to the <pre> wrapped .txt version from tools.ietf.org,
which yes, has a link to the HTML formatted xml2rfc version on it.

I'm wondering if there is a reason, or simply history, why the "html"
version doesn't go to the HTML version directly?

I'm also wondering if there is a reason why the www.ietf.org URL
is used for plain/xml rather than the tools version.

I guess I think about all of this partly from the point of view
of web and browser caches, but also from the point of view that I'm still
irked that it's not all URNs, and that the closest copy is really on my local
disk...

I also wonder if there is some reason, given the presence of the "show me the
whole thing" cookie setting for the datatracker, why that doesn't result in
a 302 to the ?includes_text=1 URL.  The reason this matters is because I
tend to pass that URL to my tablet offline reader (getpocket), although I think
I'll be using the tools.ietf.org HTML copy in future.  (Sadly, pocket still
can't display cached .txt URLs properly.)

Outdated I-D reference

Hi,

I am running xml2rfc 2.4.8 locally, on Ubuntu. When referencing my own I-D.ietf-uta-tls-attacks, it insists on generating a ref to version -01 of the draft, even though -04 is available (and appears on http://xml2rfc.ietf.org/public/rfc/bibxml3/). The online xml2rfc tool works fine. Any ideas?

Thanks,
    Yaron

Wondering about moving some aliases to be real lists

Hi,

In RTG we have been happily using rtg-chairs <at> ietf.org as a good communication
tool for the chairs to share information and ideas. However, this is an alias
not a list, so there is no archive.

We're wondering about migrating to an archived list with restricted membership
and limited access to the archive. 

Does anyone have any thoughts for or against?
One question is whether the membership of a mailman list can be automated.
Consider, for example, that the IESG list is manually updated as IESG members
come and go.

Thanks,
Adrian

Opening tickets

Greetings yet again. After I sent that last message to this list, I see from the footer of the message that I
was supposed to instead turn in a trouble ticket, so I did: http://tools.ietf.org/tools/issues/ticket/2

Yes, it is only the second ticket in the ticketing system, and #1 was a test message.

Is that thing on?

Changing the location of a closed WG's archive

Greetings. https://tools.ietf.org/wg/openpgp/ says that the mail archive is at
http://www.imc.org/ietf-openpgp/mail-archive/; it should instead point to
https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/openpgp, which is the IETF-run list.
