I'd like to add a me too to that and a few suggestions...
I'd like to add that the datatracker be easier to find that having it
"buried" under the IESG roster on the IESG page. I've referenced the
datatracker a lot recently, more so that I thought I ever would. I
think it ought to be up front on the IETF site (i.e., www.ietf.org), as
this is the best indication of the current state of $topic-or-group.
Another tool that I was alerted to that I find helpful is the draft
http://tools.ietf.org/wg/<wg name>/<draft name>/
If it weren't for my WG chair telling me this was being done, I would
have never seen it for documents I am editing.
It's well understood that the ietf.org site is hard to navigate and needs
substantial reorganisation. But this is a major project and will take
time to plan and implement.
You can in fact find the tools page off the IESG Activities/Actions
page, so it's only one level down. And I agree, that page is in need
of a clean-up.
While we're talking, let me point to a recently created "operational
notes" page at http://www.ietf.org/u/ietfchair/opNotes.html
Comments welcome. That too is currently linked in an obscure place.
Nevertheless, Google found it in 0.38 seconds.
