The RFC Editor has added a new informational service to authors.
Whenever a document enters the editorial queue, changes its state in
the queue, or leaves the queue, an email message summarizing the state
change is now being sent automatically to the authors.  This message is
for information only; it does not replace existing messages to authors,
such as AUTH48 messages.

Here are examplse of such messages:

    The document draft-ietf-sipping-conferencing-framework-05
    has hanged from EDIT*R state to RFC-EDITOR state.

    The document draft-ietf-avt-uncomp-video-ext-01 has
    changed from EDIT*A state to EDIT state.

If present, the suffix "*A" in the state listed in this message means:
"IANA actions are needed".  This in an encoding of the keyword
"IANA" in the queue entry for the Draft.

If present, the suffix "*R" in the state listed in this message means:
"Contains one or more normative references to drafts that are not yet
published."  Any such references are detailed after the keyword
"REF" in the queue entry for the Draft.
