While logged in to https://tracker.tools.ietf.org/ as a Secretariat user:

Wish list: 

- Add a link to Management Items (currently https://datatracker.ietf.org/admin/iesg/telechatagendaitem/ on the production server) under the Secretariat heading in the sidebar.


- On the telechat dates page, I like that we can add a whole slew of dates at once now, instead of being stuck with 4 at a time; and yes, the "suggest latest date + 14" feature works.  But without the "Rollup" function that we currently have, how does the IESG agenda get set up for the next telechat with the right date at the top and the right set of documents?

- Will the Secretariat still need to remove documents from the IESG agenda after the telechat in order to set up for the next one, or is that no longer necessary?


- I moved draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv4-bulk-leasequery-05 from the 2012-02-16 agenda to the 2012-03-29 agenda using https://tracker.tools.ietf.org/iesg/agenda/documents/, and the document showed up on the 2012-03-29 agenda as a returning item, even though it is not a returning item.  (In all fairness, this has been a persistent issue with the current datatracker as well.  But this did give me the opportunity to test the "clear returning item" checkbox, and it seems to work as it's supposed to.)

- Looking at the announcement text for individual documents (e.g. https://tracker.tools.ietf.org/doc/draft-kucherawy-authres-spf-erratum/edit/approvaltext/), it looks like system plans to try and CC the announcement to none-chairs@tools.ietf.org.  I would guess it's trying that because the WG is set to "none" for individual submissions, but that address is going to bounce.  (In the production version of the datatracker, announcements on individual submissions just go to IETF-Announce with a CC to the RFC Editor.)

- I tried to regenerate the approval announcement text on draft-irtf-hiprg-proxies and got an error.  (Originally, the text that was there was for a regular IETF stream doc, but I hadn't checked the "Via IRTF or RFC Editor" box when adding the doc, even though the stream menu was set to "IRTF.")  After checking the box, I tried to regenerate the announcement to see if the correct text appeared, and got this error:
