1. When will the next version of the S/MIME spec be posted?
(hopefully, clarifying the FOO(_at_)40-bit issue)
Soon. We're still waiting to hear from the RFC editor and Internet Drafts
editors with the draft that will replace RC2.
2. Is there going to be a working-group formed before the Jeff Schiller
July 1st date?
Highly unlikely. No one has expressed much interest in a charter.
3. Is the S/MIME working-group going to meet in Munich (August)?
No, since it won't exist. :-) Further, as we made clear at the second
S/MIME BOF in Memphis, there can be no more BOFs (two's the max).
4. Are the two S/MIME specs going on the Informational (FYI) track?
We won't know that until we finish them. We're still hoping for standards
track, of course, but a lot has to happen between here and there.
