3) Issues
ISSUE-98: Reference format needs to be unified [xmlsec-algorithms]
The format used for references is inconsistent, and should be cleaned  
up before publication as a Note. Also, links to specs' individual  
sections should either all use dated URIs, or all use "latest version"  
4) Document editorial updates

4a) XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference Editors Draft


Draft update


4b) XML Signature 1.1 draft

Updated for ACTION-178, OCSP Response (schema as well)


Additional changes

ECKeyValue editors note

4c) Transform Simplification


5) XML Signature 1.1


5a) Elliptic curve algorithms
"Related to this, as we're now (potentially) mandating support for a
particular elliptic curve (ansix9p256r1), should we also identify some
recommended curves at the 192-bit or 256-bit security level too?

In addition, it does not quite line up to specify ECDSA-SHA384 and
ECDSA-SHA512 if we only identify a p256-bit curve.

And shouldn't we have a curve statement in XMLEnc 1.1. similar to the  
in XMLDsig 1.1?"

5b) Mandatory Algorithms Questionnaire and Decision for XML Signature  
1.1 and XML Encryption 1.1


5c) KeyInfo and raw data


6) XML Signature Transform Simplification: Requirements and Design
