Revamp of the website

2017-07-15 04:21:35
I am pleased to report that there has been a lot of progress on the project to 
revamp of the website. The updated website will be the “front 
door” for the IETF, not only for for active IETF participants, but also 
provides an onramp for potential participants, and helps explain the work of 
the IETF to people who are not directly involved in developing Internet 
standards. The complete Scope of Work for the project is available at:

Based on recent feedback, including the demo table at IETF 98, the initial 
design and features of the website have been improved in many ways. For 
example, in response to the feedback provided, there is now a single page that 
provides links to tools and resources commonly used by active IETF participants.

The project is now entering the next phase of the website development. The goal 
for this phase is to gather input more broadly. While there are still a few 
features to be implemented and some content still needs to be fine tuned, the 
general organization and the look-and-feel of the website has been implemented 
based on the initial research and input received to date. Of course, there will 
be some additional significant work before the site is ready for production; 
for example, before the website is final, we will implement methods to ensure 
that well-known URLs continue to work as expected. 

The site is now accessible at:

Please take a look. We will be tracking issues that need addressing at:

Feedback can also be emailed directly to: webmaster(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org

At IETF 99 in Prague, there will be a table near meeting registration to 
demonstrate the beta website with “office hours" posted on a sign by the table. 
Please stop by if you are in Prague!  The office hours will be at least:

   Monday, July 17, 08:30-09:30 and 17:15-17:45

   Tuesday, July 18, 08:30-09:30

   Wednesday, July 19, 08:30-9:30
