There are several tasks the WG should do:

- New signature subpackets.  For example one to specify a fingerprint
  and not just the keyid.

- Take care of individual I-Ds.

- The use of SHA-1 needs to be replaced.

- A v5 key format.  Prepare for forthcoming public key algorithms.

- A new encryption mode to replace our aging CFB+SHA1 method with a
  fast and standard mode.

- Maybe extend it to key distribution.

Is there any interest in this?

I think there is interest.

How can we get the WG out of the concluded state?

Write up a list of things to do, draft a new charter. You started some
of that already with your list above.

Would the Dallas meeting be a starting point for this?

Deadlines for organising things "officially" are passed:

But I'm happy to organise an unofficial meetup and take notes.

Who would volunteer as Chair?

I'd be happy to be a co-chair.
