Summary: Draft submission tool changes
Release Date: Thu, September 26, 2019 at 6:42 PM UTC
Release Author: Henrik Levkowetz

This release contains two changes to the submission tool: During draft
submission, the email verification is skipped for logged-in users, and
author email addresses are now required for all authors, in order to avoid
author notification problems during IETF and RFC-Editor processing. Commit
log details:

  • Changed draft submission to not require an email round-trip when the
    submitter is logged in. Added corresponding test cases.

  • Added code to detect conflicting information for draft name, revision,
    and title when both XML and text versions of a document are submitted.

  • Changed the draft submission form and views so that an email address is
    required for each author in order to complete self-service draft
    submission. It is possible to add these as metadata updates, but this will
    lead to submission through the secretariat (and the email addresses will
    still be required). Also updated related templates to make the handling of
    form section headings more consistent.

  • Added some caching to /release/ pages. With now more than 350
    releases, the page response times had increased to typically 4s. Caching
    in view and template brought this down to ~160ms.
