 Dear Grosso, Paul ,

The XML Security Working Group has reviewed the comments you sent [1] on
the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the XML Signature Streaming Profile of
XPath 1.0 published on 21 Apr 2011. Thank you for having taken the time to
review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below.

Please review it carefully and let us know by email at
public-xmlsec@w3.org if you agree with it or not before 28 June 2011. In
case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific solution for
or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If such a consensus cannot
be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to raise a formal objection
which will then be reviewed by the Director during the transition of this
document to the next stage in the W3C Recommendation Track.


For the XML Security Working Group,
Thomas Roessler

Your comment on :
> XML Signature Streaming Profile of XPath 1.0
> http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-xpath/ In general I don't

Working Group Resolution (LC-2489):
The XML Signature Streaming Profile of XPath 1.0 makes sense for the
reasons stated in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xmlsec/2011Jun/0013.html and
should continue on the Recommendation track.
