Dimitris commenced the Forum teleconference, checking changes to the roll call.

Inigo gave overview of Server Cert WG ballot status.

Bruce Morton gave overview of Code Signing WG. He described two ballots in IPR (signing service and high risk). Working on ballot for timestamping language improvement. Dimitris is working on EVG mapping to CSBR.

Stephen Davidson gave overview of S/MIME Cert WG, noting that SMC05 on CAA would exit IPR on February 16 and the WG would move to the clarifications ballot SMC06 shortly thereafter, which has been much discussed. Dimitris asked if there was a rule for when ballots were bundled vs single issue. Stephen noted that in general the SMCWG would focus on a regular cadence of ballots, and only have standalone ones on major changes such as adoption of CAA.

Jos Purvis gave update on Infrastructure WG work including important updates to the email server. He also described the website proposal from Paul, for which it seems there is general support. The WG is discussing what a switch would entail.

Clint Wilson gave overview of the NetSec WG, which includes ongoing review of the proposed edits, with recent conversations focusing on MFA and multiparty control.

Dimitris discussed the New Delhi F2F agenda, which is on the wiki, and welcomed additional topics from members. Tim reminded chairs that it’s useful to summarise their WG’s work since last F2F and roadmap for near future.

On any other business, Paul noted that he’d like to move over to the new website as soon as possible if there is no objection to avoid maintenance of two platforms. There was discussion regarding transition and it was agreed that the Infrastructure WG would make the required decisions and keep the Forum informed.

Next call is February 15, 2024. Meeting adjourned.
