IETF82 Code Sprint

The IETF 82 Code Sprint in Taipei will focus on enhancements to the current tracker, and on starting to use parts of the new database scheme. The Sprint will be run in the same way as the successful IETF77Sprint and IETF78Sprint where we completed and released a good number of individual enhancements.

If you plan to participate, please sign up on the IETF82SprintSignUp page.

This sprint will take place from 9:30 to 18:00 in room <>. The coding will end 18:00 on the dot, with dinner and follow-up afterwards.

We have the mailing list "" to help with coordination and for use during the event. Please make sure you're subscribed before the event starts. More info on the list is available at

There is also a jabber room at

For information on setting up your environment, code checkout and commit, etc., see the SprintCoderSetup and SprintDatabase pages.

During the sprint, please update the two tables below; this helps both with coordination and with getting the code merged, released, and deployed :-)

See you in Quebec!

This sprint's plan

  • Primary focus: Add new functionality you've wanted to have in the datatracker.
  • Secondary: Do test coding against the available tables in the new database model.

Please fill in the following table when you've picked a task for the sprint. It's quite all right to pick and complete multiple tasks :-)
