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.

There were not many comments but I think the interest is there.  It states 
what is needed simply and accurately.  Let's get going!

What is going on with RSA and the 2 issues.  Was there ever any discussions 
or give-and-take on RC2 as the minimum mandatory algorithm by RSA?  Is there 
real intention on making S/MIME a formal vs defacto standard?
