At our last teleconference we agreed [1] to publish a Last Call for XML Security 2.0 specifications and to publish an updated WD of the XML Security 2.0 requirements, once edits were completed.
Those edits are now complete [2], [3].

To be explicit, the decision is to publish the following as Last Call working drafts:

(1) Canonical XML Version 2.0, http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/c14n-20/

(2) XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0, http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core-20/

(3) XML Signature Streaming Profile of XPath 1.0, http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-xpath/

We will also publish an updated WD of the 2.0 Requirements:

(4) XML Security 2.0 Requirements and Design Considerations, http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmlsec-reqs2/Overview.html 

In anticipation of publishing I have validated all these documents and also checked the links, fixing some reference problems as part of this (notably the ABA reference needed updating). Additional review of the references and documents would be helpful.

Since participation on the teleconference where we made this decision did not include all the active WG members, this is a Call for Consensus (CfC) seeking consensus to move to Last Call.
If you were not on the last teleconference please respond on the public list before our next teleconference 5 April if you disagree with this decision, or better yet if you support it with a "+1". Silence will be taken to mean agreement.

One notable aspect our our decision is that we decided to move forward with a profile of XPath 1.0 as there does not seem to be sufficient resourcing support to continue with a merged profile for XPath 1.0 and 2.0. If there is sufficient community concern for this during Last Call we will consider this as a Last Call comment and act accordingly.

All - please take the time to review the updated examples section [3] and the documents as a whole.

Thank you

regards, Frederick
