[smime] Fwd: [Technical Errata Reported] RFC5958 (2653)

2011-07-24 13:26:06

Just in case anyone cares I plan to mark this verified tomorrow
unless I hear something to the contrary.

The only reason to send it around is that Sean submitted it, I'll be
verifying it and there's no current WG to shout stop, so this is
really just a transparency thing.  If you read the erratum, I think
it'll be crystal clear that verify is the right thing.
