Is the following accurate and complete? Do the editors or WG have any updates or corrections?

(1) Messaging API status (as of DAP F2F) [1]

The Messaging API editors draft was updated in advance of the F2F to split the APIs for different messaging technologies. APIs were added  for listing messages, methods added for folder management and moving messages between folders. The following resolution was reached during the F2F: RESOLUTION: Split Messaging, try to reach FPWD with just create/send/receive ASAP; have a separate MessageFinder API mirroring Contacts and Gallery; build folder management on top of that.

(2) Open Actions

This means there is an editorial action to perform this split, to simplify the Messaging API draft and move material into a new MessageFinder API draft (as well as removing folder functionality from the Messaging API draft). There was no explicit editorial action assigned, perhaps there should be.

The WG also agreed to add a security section before publishing, with the following related actions:

ACTION-221 -- Maria Angeles Oteo to draft a security section for Messaging

ACTION-222 -- Thomas Roessler to review the Messaging security section

regards, Frederick
