Document Editing and Shepherding

Presented by: Barry Leiba

Day: Sunday, July 19, 2015
Time: 15:00-16:50
Room: Karlin I/II

Description: We're pretty well used to having document shepherds by now. RFC 4858 talks about "Document Shepherding from Working Group Last Call to Publication", but there's a significant part of a document's life that happens before working group last call, starting at the time that a working group begins discussing a version of the idea that's been posted as an individual draft. This session will discuss the job of the document shepherd, the tasks that might be involved throughout a working group document's lifecycle from start to finish, and the potential for extending document shepherding into earlier stages in that lifecycle.
