Subject: [ietf-dkim] Proposed new charter
2. Collect data on the deployment, interoperability, and
effectiveness of the base DKIM protocol, with consideration
toward updating the working group's informational documents.
Would an appropriate part of this output be a "standard" test suite for
implementations to try, i.e. a batch of test messages and their expected body
and header hashes?
There are vague reports of interoperability issues starting to surface, and I
wonder how proactive the WG can be in assisting resolution of these. Debugging
interoperability problems is often a chore, especially when unresponsive
vendors are involved. Nipping these problems before they get out into the wild
is possibly the best course of action.
If this isn't a reasonable WG output, the implementers can probably come up
with such a test suite among themselves, but it seems to me there's a lot of
audience overlap anyway...
