We have confirmed that there is an authentication issue with Gather that we have escalated to them.

The workaround is to use the following URL (same as the previous URL without the 'ietf' prefix)


That page asks you to provide an email and entering that will then send you a login link to use.  The email address you specify must be your datatracker email for this to work.

Apologies for this error - we will keep you updated.
