Can we have the reference to XML-C14N11 be updated to refer to the
current PR at http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/PR-xml-c14n11-20080129/ before
this PER gets published?

	Subject: Transition Request: PER Request for XML Signature
Syntax and Processing (Second Edition)
	The XML Security Specifications Maintenance WG requests
transition of  "XML Signature Syntax and Processing (Second Edition)"
available at
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core/nochanges.html to a
Proposed Edited Recommendation (PER). We suggest a transition call on 28
February 2008.
	The URL cited above is the most recent version of the
specification as of 15 February 2008, pending final pubrules fixes.
	"XML Signature Syntax and Processing" was published on 12
February 2002 at http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xmldsig-core-20020212/ as
a Recommendation.
	All changes to the document are recorded in the "Changes in XML
Signature Syntax and Processing (Second Edition)"  document at
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core/explain.html .
	A diff-marked review copy of this PER is available at
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core/ .
	The WG's decision to request publication as a PER was taken
during a WG telcon on 12 February 2008 whose minutes may be found at
http://www.w3.org/2008/02/12-xmlsec-minutes.html .
	We propose a publication date of 6 March 2008.
	We propose that the Advisory Committee review period last from
the date of publication until 30 April 2008.  This will accommodate an
effort to publish the document simultaneously as an IETF RFC.  We do not
expect that effort to stall publication as a Recommendation.


	XML Signature Syntax and Processing (Second Edition)


	This document specifies XML digital signature processing rules
and syntax. XML Signatures provide integrity
tegrity> , message authentication
thenticationMessage> , and/or signer authentication
thenticationSigner>  services for data of any type, whether located
within the XML that includes the signature or elsewhere.

	Status of this document

	This section describes the status of this document at the time
of its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list
of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical
report can be found in the W3C technical reports index
<http://www.w3.org/TR/>  at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

	This document is a Proposed Edited Recommendation of the W3C.
This Proposed Second Edition is not a new version of XML Signature
Syntax and Processing.

	This Proposed Second Edition of XML Signature Syntax and
Processing adds Canonical XML 1.1 as a required canonicalization
algorithm and recommends its use for inclusive canonicalization. This
version of Canonical XML enables use of xml:id and xml:base
Recommendations with XML Signature and also enables other possible
future attributes in the XML namespace. Additional minor changes,
including the incorporation of known errata, are documented in Changes
in XML Signature Syntax and Processing (Second Edition)
<http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core/explain.html> .

	W3C Advisory Committee Members are invited to send formal review
comments to the W3C Team until 4 April 2008. Advisory Committee
Representatives should consult their WBS questionnaires. The public is
invited to send comments on this document to
public-xmlsec-comments@w3.org; public archives are available.

	The Working Group conducted an interoperability test as part of
its activity. The Test Cases for C14N 1.1 and XMLDSig Interoperability
>  and the Implementation Report for XML Signature, Second Edition
<http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmldsig/report.html>  documents
are publicly available.

	Publication as a Proposed Edited Recommendation does not imply
endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be
updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is
inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.

	W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in
connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes
instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual
knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential
Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of
the W3C Patent Policy.

	The English version of this specification is the only normative
version. Information about translations of XML Signature specifications
(if any) are available at the Translations of XML Signature
<http://www.w3.org/Signature/2002/02/xmldsig-translations>  web page.

	Thank you

	regards, Frederick
