From: <Frederick.Hirsch@nokia.com>
Date: Mon, 17 Jan 2011 20:55:54 +0100
To: <mnystrom@microsoft.com>
CC: <Frederick.Hirsch@nokia.com>, <public-xmlsec@w3.org>
Message-ID: <1529FB63-DFDB-42E3-A707-AFB500D00EDB@nokia.com>
I've completed the Editorial updates for 

1. XML Encryption 1.1 (also made change to XML Signature 1.1 to unify handling of with/omit comments), 

2. the XML Encryption 1.1 explanation document (also changed title), and 

3. Generic Hybrid Ciphers.

Still need to look at requirements document.


Need direct link for X9.44 (not a blocker for CR)
Need RFC for ECC-ALGS (but not a blocker for CR)
Update 1.1 cross references when going to CR

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch
