Here's my draft of the minutes. If I missed something, please send
ASRG Session (1 hour)
Wednesday afternoon session II, 1510-1610
* Review DNSBL RFC
We agreed to make the never-to-appear test entry in domain based BLS
INVALID rather than TEST. Suggestion to take out localpart.domain
mapped email addresses which aren't widely used and are potentially
messy due if localparts contain unusual characters.
We didn't resolve the question of IPv6 test entries, maybe will
reserve some new addresses, or use the mapped IPv4 addresses. We will
look for some v6 experts for advice and also to review the draft.
* Final look at DNSBL BCP. Should be last call, only editorial nits since
Current content is OK per consensus. Some suggestions that it should
also give advice to receivers, e.g., check regularly to ensure lists
are still active and don't use the ones that aren't.
It might make sense to do this as a separate document rather than
delay the existing one, or it might be better to have one BCP to hand
out, even if it takes another month or two to finish it.
* Review the modest progress on the anti-spam technique wiki
We have some volunteers:
Leif Johannsen leifj(_at_)it-su(_dot_)se
Tim Hunter tim(_dot_)hunter(_at_)eircom(_dot_)net
Jorgen Eriksson jorgen(_dot_)eriksson(_at_)iis(_dot_)se
Barry Leiba leiba(_at_)watson(_dot_)ibm(_dot_)com
We discussed the ARF (Abuse Reporting Format) draft, agreed that since
it primarily documents existing practice, no point to running it
through the ASRG.
Barry Leiba will run an informal ASRG session at the CEAS conference
later this month to spread the word and perhaps get more active
members. Goal is to have an ASRG paper for the 2009 CEAS.
The Chair thinks that assertions are interesting and will write a draft
about them RSN.
