(4) Review end date.

This Last Call period is for six weeks and will end 18 March 2010.

(5) A reference to the group's decision to make this transition.

The XML Security agreed to making this Last Call transition at its

(6) Evidence that the document satisfies group's requirements. Include

The XML Security Working Group believe this document satisfies the  
Signature and Signature Properties  requirements as outlined in the  
XML Security 1.1 Requirements and Design Considerations  document, see http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-xmlsec-reqs-20100204/

(7) The names of groups with dependencies, explicitly inviting review  
from them.

The Web Applications Working Group has a dependency on both XML  
Signature 1.1 and XML Signature Properties with the Widget Signature  
1.0 specification. The XML Security Working Group requests review from  
the Web Applications WG of these Last Call specifications.

(8) Report of any Formal Objections

The Working Group has received no formal objections.

The Working Group has noted the following in the Status of the Document:

"This Last Call Working Draft includes the ECDSAwithSHA256 signature  
algorithm, which is ECDSA over the P-256 prime curve specified in  
Section D.2.3 of FIPS 186-3 [FIPS-186-3] (and using the SHA-256 hash  
algorithm), as a mandatory to implement algorithm. The Working Group  
may request transition to Candidate Recommendation with this feature  
marked as "at risk". If issues about deployment of this feature are  
raised during Candidate Recommendation, the group may elect to make  
this feature optional."
