The Antitrust Statement was read.

      3. Review Agenda

No changes to the agenda.

      4. Approval of minutes from previous teleconference

The minutes from the previous teleconference were approved and will be 
circulated to the public list.

      5. Validation Subcommittee Update

Method 6 (http) has a draft ballot that Doug posted, it is the last 
ballot coming from the Validation Summit, and there was some discussion 
about the redirects. Doug will most probably propose limiting to 10 

They also discussed about the "clean-up ballot". There is a link 
pointing to the proposed changes in the minutes of the validation 
subcommittee, so Members can check that link for any controversial changes.

Reducing the certificate lifetime ballot was also discussed.

Finally, the subcommittee discussed about the LEI ballot which has 
language for the Fully-Verified (Fully Corroborated) information. More 
discussion already takes place on the list.

      6. NetSec Subcommittee Update

No update.

      7. Ballot Status

No further discussion on ballots under consideration

        _Ballots in Discussion Period_

/Ballot SC22: Reduce Certificate Lifetimes /(Ryan)
Mike asked about the three-week discussion period and whether that was 
something decided at the Validation Subcommittee. Ryan mentioned that it 
was discussed at the subcommittee level for about a month and then moved 
to ballot in order to get any further feedback.

There was a short discussion about whether the proposer must send an 
e-mail to explicitly start the voting period, regardless whether the 
ballot e-mail states a "voting begin" date. The interpretation of the 
Bylaws was that an explicit email by the proposer needs to start the 
voting period, which must be exactly 7 days.

No additional comments

/SC21 Ballot (NSR 3): Log Integrity Controls/ (Ben)
Ben asked whether the ballots should be considered withdrawn since they 
have not been updated for a while. Dimitris responded that since these 
are still in the "Draft ballots" and have not started an official 
"Discussion Period", they are not considered withdrawn, unless the 
proposer wants to withdraw them.

Tobi mentioned that the Network Security Subcommittee will have a better 
idea about these two ballots in two weeks.

No other business.
