Chairs -

A few releases ago, we changed the way the datatracker allows you to 
make references to external resources (see the section labelled 
Additional Resources on a document's main page or on a groups /about page).

If you are using github for your working group or a set of drafts, 
please consider pointing to the repository or organization using the 
github_repo and github_org tags respectively. The datatracker will use 
the urls you provide with those tags to backup the repositories.

(You'll see github and gitlab username tags in the hint for the edit 
form - those are not used by the backup mechanism - there is no need to 
enter any such thing for this purpose).
