This is a call for consensus (CfC) for the XML Security WG to agree to publish the following as W3C Notes on 10 January 2013, assuming that date works for the W3C Team.

1. "XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference"

Draft (3 December 2012): http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmlsec-algorithms/Overview.html

The XML Security working group agrees not to include XML Security 2.0 algorithms in "XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference" (at this time).

Publish updated draft as a W3C Note - this has been previously published as a Note track working draft.

See status section and linked redline for changes since last publication.

2. "XML Security 1.1 Requirements and Design Considerations"

Draft (4 December 2012):  http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmlsec-reqs/Overview.html

Publish updated draft as a W3C Note. Previously published as a Note track working draft.

(updates were editorial switch to ReSpec 3, validation and other editorial fixes)

3. "XML Security Generic Hybrid Ciphers"

Draft (4 December 2012): http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/generic-hybrid-ciphers/Overview.html

Publish as a W3C Note with status indicating that the XML Security WG does not intend to progress this document on the Recommendation track at this time. Additional updates to the status language may be required to reflect this transition.

Agreeing to this decision means I will request Note publications for these three documents after 17 December with a planned  publication date of 10 January 2013, assuming that date works for the W3C Team. As part of publication process I will update the references (including cross-references to other documents being published at the same time), as well as prepare publication drafts with the appropriate cover pages.

I will send a separate CfC regarding the Best Practices document once we have a set of proposed and agreed changes.

Please respond to this email by next Tuesday 11 December indicating support (a +1 will do) or any concern. Silence will constitute consent, but a positive response is preferred.


regards, Frederick
