Hi Bob -
I'd like to second Thomas Narten's praise ... this is indeed a good change.
You know what would be truly great for the publication status stuff?
Lots of folks are consuming this type of information via RSS. I know
XML isn't the answer to all things, but was hoping you'd consider a
request to make the queue available in RSS.
> 6 October 2005
> On September 27, the RFC Editor installed a program to
> automatically generate the publication queue file daily from our
> master database. The queue file had been maintained manually,
> which sometimes led to errors. Our intent in this change was that
> users should see no differences (except for lack of errors), but
> of course there were some initial glitches. Please notify us of
> problems with the new queue.
> One feature has been added to the queue: each normative reference
> entry ("REF") now indicates whether the referenced document is in
> the queue. Our current policy is to not begin editing a document
> until all its normative references are also in the queue (or
> already published, of course). For example, the following partial
> entry shows a document in the EDIT state with two unpublished
> Normative references, one of which has not been received by the
> RFC Editor:
> 2005-03-31 draft-ietf-simple-event-filter-funct-05.txt
> REF draft-ietf-simple-event-list NOT-RECEIVED
> draft-ietf-simple-filter-format IN-QUEUE
