8. Approval of F2F 47 Minutes

Dimitris mentioned that at least one member requested more time to review and offer corrections to some specific sessions so the F2F minutes would not be considered for approval at this meeting. Hopefully the minutes will be updated soon and circulated again so they can be considered for approval at the next scheduled teleconference.

9. Any Other Business

Dean asked for some clarifications on a question that was submitted in the questions list. Ryan responded that the person that submitted the question has probably misunderstood the requirement. Dean said he would draft an answer and send it to Ryan for comments and feedback. If we consider this language to be problematic, someone should bring it for public discussion in the servercert-wg list.

10. Next call
