Release notes:

ietfdb (7.17.0) ietf; urgency=medium

  * Added an assertion to catch an unexpected document state (no IESG-state 
    set).  Updated the log.assertion() function to accept a "note" argument, 
    for more informative assertion messages.

  * Fixed a bad membership test.

  * Updated the decrypt() templatetag to ensure it returns (unicode) strings
    rather than bytes.

  * Added a view to retrieve profile photos, in order to support Meetecho's
    need for such, at /person/{email}/photo.  The default is to supply images
    with 80px width.  Image scaling is available using the same query argument
    as for Gravatar: ?size=200 or ?s=200 for 200-pixel wide images, for

  * OpenID already has a photo URL as part of the 'profile' scope.  Added the
    datatracker photo url to the returned OpenID 'profile' scope information
    when a profile photo is available.

  * Updated coverage data and tweaked an OpenIDtest and a scope description.

  * Added a datatracker version endpoint /api/version.  Fixes issue #3077.

  * Added documentation of the OpenID Connect and version endpoints to 
    /api/.  Added some tests.
