Re: [widgets] new digsig draft


Thanks for taking this pass.

  I note a number of editorial corrections that I believe should be  
made before publishing:

1. Introduction should not have normative statements, and these  
replicate material later in the document, so change "MAY" to "can" in  
2 places.

2. Section 4, #4, change "must" to "MUST"

3. Section 4, #6, change "Security" to "security"

4. Section 5.3.1, include blank line between bullet with DIGIT and  
next bullet

5. Section 6, replace ".." with "." in editorial note

6. Section 6.1, change "DSAwithSHA" to "DSAwithSHA1"

7. Section 7.2, change link to be from "signature file", it is  
currently broken

8. End of section 8, remove example from sentence, change "For  
example, end-users"  to "End-users" and combine with previous paragraph.

9. Add note to  [XMLDSIG-Properties] reference as follows (at end of  
reference entry):

Note, section 9 includes additions made in the XML Security WG to the  
XML Signature Properties editors draft (subsequent to First Public  
Working Draft) that are used in this specification.


I also suggest you make sure that all changes in the working draft are  
also reflected in what is checked into the Editors draft in CVS so we  
can make changes as needed without losing these latest changes for the  
working draft (the only difference need be the setting as editors vs  
working draft I think).

I also notice on a substantive level that you changed the namespace.  
Was the reason to match a pre-existing choice for the Packaging and  
Configuration? Is this an item for discussion?

The other changes looked good, thanks for improving the draft.

regards, Frederick
