Hi Art,
Thanks for reaching out to OpenAjax Alliance, but most likely we will not
be providing feedback on the Digital Signatures spec. We haven't done
anything at OAA around digsigs. I send email to our Security committee, but
I don't expect any response. Personally, I have just general knowledge
about digsigs and haven't been following the detailed discussion in the
WebApps WG about digsigs.

Incidentally, keep up the great work!

Hi Jon - we would appreciate any comments the members of the Open
Ajax Alliance have regarding the Web Applications WG's latest Widgets
