The full jabber log can be found here:
The 22 June jabber meeting was called to order at 1500 UTC on,
surprisingly, 22 June. In attendance were, in jabber-roll-call order,
Barry Leiba, Dennis Dayman, Doug Otis, Eric Allman, Jim Fenton, Peter
Koch, Murray Kucherawy, and Mike Thomas. The agenda was simply to go
through the issues list and check status, to make sure we're on track
for working-group last call of the -base-04 spec, which Eric intends to
submit by the deadline of this Monday, 26 June, at 6 a.m. Pacific Time.
I will list the issues here, along with the conclusion and action
item(s). For details of the discussion, see the jabber log.
1286: draft-ietf-dkim-base-02 //a= algorithm ABNF
1286 will be CLOSED, change made for -base-04.
1287: base: signature removal
Discussion revealed that John Levine had volunteered to give Eric some
proposed text to resolve this.
1287: REMAINS OPEN, John Levine to propose text to Eric.
1288: base: signing address
Jim Fenton had agreed to work with Eric on text for this.
1288: REMAINS OPEN, Jim to work with Eric on defining default in one
place & referring to it later.
1289: Base-02 signature process clarification requested
Some did not understand this; Barry and Jim both do, and have
volunteered to propose text.
1289: REMAINS OPEN, Barry to propose text.
1291: Use of "sender" in -base
Dave sent Eric text for this, but one other issue came up yesterday.
Eric is OK to resolve that, so...
1291: CLOSE, fixed in -base-04
1292: draft-ietf-dkim-base-02 //g= template
Much discussion of this, with decision to define a flag instead of what
the issue DB suggests now: Key record will have a new flag that says
that i= must be the same as d= in order to use this key.
1292: CLOSE, fix will be made in -base-04 as per above.
1293: base-02 // worst-case scenario/duration of exploit/use of deprecated
Insufficient understanding of this item. Doug has posted something he
says is clearer, but people hadn't read it yet. We'll all go back to
the list with this one.
1293: REMAINS OPEN, study and discuss on mailing list.
1294: draft-ietf-dkim-base-02 //i= parameter conflict
Only Doug wants this, but no one else agrees. Doug says that John
Levine supports it, so we'll check that on the mailing list. As it
stands, NO CHANGE will be made for this unless there is other support.
1294: CLOSE with no change... pending confirmation on mailing list.
1295: issue with relaxed body canonicalization?
Brief discussion on whether to leave it in for now, consensus is to
leave it and remove later (maybe at move to Draft Std) if it turns out
to be unused.
1295: CLOSE, no change.
1296: user at sub.example.com vs. user at example.com
This is John Levine's version of what basically is the same as 1292.
Let's see if John likes the answer to 1292 for this too.
1296: CLOSE, see resolution for 1292 -- subject to confirmation with JohnL.
1297: Clarification on z=
Discussion about the QP thing and how to put leading blanks, already
discussed on the mailing list. Eric has posted text to mailing list,
but not everyone has read it. Go read. Lacking objections, we'll use
that text and close this.
1297: CLOSE, accept Eric's text for -base-04.
That's the end of the issues list. Doug repeated a request that he's
made before: "There should be some consideration give the Security
Consideration section regarding the affects of the _domainkey subdomain
use." Eliot, please open a new issue for this so we can track it. So
far, we've not seen support on the mailing list for putting this in, but
we'll open a tracked issue for it and give it one more chance during WGLC.
DKIM meeting ended at 1558 UTC. Thanks, all.....
