Be careful what you ask for, you might get it.

Derek and I went through the issues from Seoul this afternoon, and

that's resolved now. A draft should come out soon -- he's going to
some things about the remaining open issues where there's no text.


but what about the difference in subkey production?

will PGP generate/allow addition of subkeys that can sign as well as

it might be necessary if the requirement is for the subkey to sign the
master, and the master to sign the subkey

Does this mean you think I should strip out all V3 keys now? I'd
happy to put out an interim draft RSN to just put a nail in V3 keys
you suggest. :-)


(In case it's not clear, I really am joking)

{it is clear ;-) }

but the truth is, 
it probably wouldn't matter,

the hardline v3 users don't rely primarily on servers for key exchange
