Re: [widgets] How to divorce widgets-digsig from Elliptic Curve PAG?

Hi Art, 

the pessimistic XMLSECPAG chair told you that it wouldn't resolve within days. 
But I hope to have a clear view and plan by the end of January. Executing that 
plan may take some time. Plan is to resolve until end of March, if everything 
goes well. Well meaning a decision of the PAG and the execution thereof, not 
necessarily finding a way to destroy the disclosed patents.

The three years can be explained by very promising negotiations with Certicom 
on an RF license that finally failed because of an overreaching clause on 
defensive suspension. We were really close to a resolution.
