The IETF Administration LLC is soliciting bids for the 'Trac and Subversion migration to GitHub' RFP.  


The IETF maintains a number of Trac and Subversion instances used for IETF tools development that are actively used for issue tracking, wiki pages, release management and source code control.  These tools include:

• Datatracker - main document and workflow management tool
• xml2rfc - main tool used by IETF document authors.
• Mailarchive -  custom mail archiving tool with a web interface that replaces the default Mailman archive.
• Mailreplay - re-send captured emails using SMTP.
• Postconfirm - mail processing tool used to control access to IETF mailing lists.
• Postfind - find postfix log-entries related to a given Message-ID.
• xml2rfc web service - a wrapper to xml2rfc providing a web API and interactive web page
• BibXML generators - generates XML citations in BibXML formats.

In addition, there are three Trac instances that are actively used by IETF working groups for issue tracking. 

The IETF seeks a contractor to migrate these Trac and Subversion installations to GitHub.
