Yesterday, an unauthorized IPR statement was issued in update of #693
(the one on the DKIM base -00 draft), supposedly against a
non-existent version of the old, pre-RFC draft. As soon as I saw it,
I contacted Andy Chen, the contact point in the true IPR statement,
who confirmed that it was unauthorized. The bogus one was removed
shortly after it was issued.
> The most recent IPR seems thus to be `920' of January 2008
That is correct. I've been communicating with Andy for a short while
before this, asking them to review 4871bis to see if their IPR
statement applies to it as well. If they determine that it does, he
will update #920 accordingly, and you'll see that announced then.
