How about allowing PROTO shepherds to post to the I-D tracker?
Can't they ? At least the questionnaire (modulo 1F) is posted.
Not at present. The writeup is posted by whoever processed the shepherd's
request for publication (to iesg-secretary, which AFAIK is an RT queue).
Further changes are generally made as necessary and appropriate by the IESG
secretary, the AD who placed a DISCUSS, or the sponsoring AD, who is
supposed to be copied on all of the shepherd's communication regarding the
IIRC, there ws a plan at least at one time to provide greater access to
shepherds, such as the ability to post comments on one of their documents
and perhaps even make certain state changes. However, the tracker's access
control model was somewhat primitive.
There is work in progress (requirements-gathering appears to be nearly
complete) to extend the tracker to provide WG chairs with tools to track
documents while they are still in the hands of the working group. I expect
this will require extending the access control model, so perhaps when
that's done we'll see enhanced access for shepherds. Anyone from the tools
team want to comment on this?
