MOD subgroup - Scott
Scott's latest version is 1.6. Scott is adding some more text,
on conformance etc. We will try to avoid several level of
conformance. Important unresolved issues will be inserted in
Extensibility differently understood by different people.
We need written text to discuss. May be too late for this draft.
How are we really using enums?
New contribution from Patrick with rewrite of some of the text,
in language closer to computer science. Will this make it more
readable? Comments back to the DL. Do we have time to switch
even if we like it?
Next phone conference for MOD - Friday at 10-12 am PSC. This is
also dealine for comments.

Security requirements (threats, methods of attack) and

track. Other alternatives? Bob to talk to Asad about

Add SSL and S-MIME to IETF agenda to attract right people.
Patrick suggested to forget about GSS, which is too heavyweight.

We would like to make our Web site a little more attractive in
time for Memphis. We should also clean out most of the old
document references when the new drafts are ready.
Editors should contact secretariat now to get names for their
documents. No comments will be considered after this Friday!
Final text for the WG Charter is being polished - should be out
any day now!
