Release notes:

ietfdb (7.17.1) ietf; urgency=medium

  IETF meeting agenda customization work.

    templates.  Split the SECRETARIAT_TICKET_EMAIL setting into

    use the settings value, and updated some places to use 
    instead of the ietf-action address.  Fixes issue #3081.

  * Updated log.assertion() to provide an exception object (under Py3, it 
    seems that logging.Logger instances ignore the traceback if there isn't 
    also an exception object).  Added a check for unset draft-iesg state to 

  * Updated a middleware function to use the correct Py3 idiom to access 
    exception arguments.

  * Merged in [18466] from

  * Added a migration to create missing DocAlias instances (and remove some 
    bad ones).

  * Fixed a couple of pyflakes issues.

  * Fixed a bytes/unicode issue for echoed-back nomcom questionnaire text.

  * Merged in ^/personal/rjs/fixreviews_7.17.1.dev0:
    Repair migration for disconnected and confused reviews.

  * Changed the template for /meeting/upcoming.ics to not produce floating
