Minutes of the June F2F meeting were approved

Signing Service discussion (continued)

With Bruce being absent from this meeting and having worked a great deal on this item, the group decided to hold off on discussing this item.

Timestamping (continued)

Ian has checked with Karina. They are working on doing a broad update of the root policy requirements and will be bundling this in.

Corey mentioned that we should be doing a cleanup ballot and then work on a ballot for a number of timestamp items

Proposal to revocation based on malware

Martijn sent out an email on Monday with a proposal to change the language related to malware revocation. As of yesterday, there is also a draft pull request available on Github (

There were no direct comments to the proposal

Other Business

Dean brought up having issues with write access on the code-signing Github repository. It was confirmed the pull-request was merged, meaning Github is up to date after CSC-14 has passed.

Corey suggested the Infrastructure subcommittee might need to address the overall Github access setup

The next meeting is set for July 14th.
