Thanks Robert, that's helpful.

This makes me wonder about the converse -- turning things *off* in tools that WGs don't use.

For example, if you go to:
  https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/quic/about/
and follow the 'Tools" link to:
  https://tools.ietf.org/wg/quic/
... there are several tools that the WG doesn't use (e.g., Wiki, Training). Furthermore, following "Wiki" to
  https://trac.ietf.org/trac/quic
leads to "Roadmap", "Browse Source", "View Tickets" that the WG also doesn't use.

Could we get these links (or tools?) able to be turned off by the WG chairs if they're not using them? They confuse newcomers, and generally having multiple sources of 'truth' isn't great. It also might be good to consider moving the creation of these tools to on-demand, rather than on-instantiation. 

Cheers,
