To those who are interested in taking advantage of the summer
recess to come up to speed with the WSWAG's most recent security
related discussions, I'd suggest follow the threads below to gain
some sense of context first.  It's deemed highly beneficial to
include in your cerebral exercise the WSAWG's security and
privacy requirements, drafted under AC006 and AC020 in the
latest requirements doc.

> - Proposing topics (MANAGEABLE topics) that we can make real

> the F2F in 4 weeks.

> The best way to move forward, in my experience, is to PROPOSE
