The IETF Datatracker tool needs to be enhanced to make it possible
for Working Group (WG) Chairs to provide IETF participants with more
information about the status and progression of WG documents than is
currently possible.

This document defines new states and status annotation tags that
need to be added to the Datatracker to enable WG Chairs and their
Delegates to track the status of Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) that are
associated with their WGs.  This document also describes the meaning
of all previously implemented I-D states and substate annotation
tags currently used by IETF Area Directors to indicate the status of
I-Ds that have been sent to the IESG for evaluation and publication.
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.
