David,

Thank you for your input on the http prefix for the ssh uri.  I think 
the general consensus and what I'm reading from your message indicates 
that we'll continue to move forward with the ssh draft as-is, opting for 
a new uri scheme as you indicate.  

We have some revisions to make to the draft itself based on feedback 
here about the location of the fingerprint and feedback from from the 
ssh working group mailing list.  When we get that revisions settled 
we'll submit it back to these mailing lists for a final walkthrough.

Thanks everyone for their input.

Steve
