Summary: Support for profile photo and biograpy
Release Date: Sun, June 12, 2016 at 10:44 AM UTC
Release Author: Henrik Levkowetz
This release brings in basic support for having a biography and a photo
associated with a person's profile in the datatracker. This makes it
possible to provide photo presentation pages for the IESG
[https://dt.ietf.org/iesg/photos], the IAB [https://dt.ietf.org/group/iab],
WG chairs, [https://dt.ietf.org/wg], etc.
It is of course possible to extend this to displaying photos as part of many
other regular datracker pages, but this first release only aims at making
photos available for use cases such as the IESG, IAB, and WG Chair pages
already present (and manually maintained) at www.ietf.org. Since the
datatracker already has the information on who the sitting ADs, WG Chairs,
etc. are, this release makes it feasible to automatically keep pages such as
https://www.ietf.org/iesg/members.html up-to-date by pulling role, photo,
and bio information from the datatracker.
