Stephen and I apologize for having let this slip since the last IETF
meeting, but we're ready to get back to the discussion of
Specifically, we would like to present the list of points discussed so
far, at least as I've managed to distill them (and so if I've missed
your favourite, it was not on purpose, so assume nothing from that and
tell me about the omission). We've had lots of discussion in
September and October, and I don't want to revisit that. What I want
to do here is take a poll.
Please look at the following list, and respond to this thread (please
do not change the subject, so the votes stay in one thread). In your
response, say which items, by number, you would like to see included
in a new charter, and which items, by number, you would oppose having
in a new charter. (In the case that we choose item 10, go dormant, we

We'll collect the votes over the next two weeks, and report back here
with results after the close on 5 Feb.
The list, as I've been able to distill it out of the lengthy discussions:
1. Advance DKIM base to Draft Standard
2. 3rd-party authorization label:

3. Other 3rd-party signing issues (New protocol? Info doc?)
4. Mailing list cohabitation ("dkim=except-mlist")
5. Other mailing list issues (info doc)
6. Specifying ADSP/forwarder guidelines for re-signing (is this
different from mailing list issues?)
7. Collect data on deployment and effectiveness of DKIM base
8. Collect data on deployment and effectiveness of ADSP, and consider
future of ADSP
9. Update overview and deployment/operations documents (info), as new
data are collected.
10. Go dormant for a while, and revisit these questions in 8 to 12 months.
Let the polling begin.
