Sunday, November 4, 2012 - 15:00-16:50
Room: Salon C




This tutorial will present an overview of the following:







   * Document search, display and print tools







     This covers tools for retrieval of current and old documents based



     on part of the filename, or on content; various available ways to



     view the documents (plain text, html, pdf, diffs), print them



     nicely, and get more information about their status etc.











   * Draft preparation tools







     A brief mention of xml2rfc but more about idnits, diff tools, spell-



     checking, and maybe XML validation.











   * Working group tools







     Working group status pages and individual document status pages,



     wikis, issue trackers, collected session agendas and session minutes



     marked up with document and materials links.  Email aliases for



     WG chairs and ADs.











   * IETF meeting related tools







     Meeting agenda marked up with links to: htmlized session agendas,



     jabber rooms, meeting materials, room location etc.  Individually



     customised extracts from the agenda converted to downloadable and



     subscribable calendar files.











(And just maybe, if there is time at the end a little bit about:







   * Tool builder tools







     Meta-information about drafts and working groups which is available



     to prospective tool builders - where to find it, what kind of



     information is available, and in which formats. )
