I have a question and a bug.

Question: It looks like the datatracker now magically gets the information when a new RFC is published.  Previously, the Secretariat had to do part of that manually, including changing the IESG state to "RFC Published."  Does this now happen automatically, or does the datatacker sync with the RFC Editor database at set times?  In either case, it looks like the Secretariat no longer needs to take action here?

(I ask because there were RFCs published yesterday that weren't updated in the datatracker when I looked around noon Pacific yesterday, but are updated now.  There are also RFCs that were published around 0800 Pacific today that have already been updated in the datatracker.)

Bug: In the history trails of the RFCs that were published in the last two days, it shows the RFC as being published on 2012-02-01, rather than 2012-02-29 or 2012-03-01:


And strangely, for draft-ietf-6man-3627-historic, the history trail does not include an "RFC Published" message from the system at all (although the doc page itself does have a link to the RFC):


[And if you look at draft-ietf-sieve-notify-sip-message, the history trail has the correct time stamp because Amy changed the state manually to RFC Published yesterday.  At some later point the datatracker got the correct RFC number information from somewhere else.]
