1.       Antitrust Statement was read.

2.       Minutes of March 5th meeting were approved. Ben to post to website

3.       Ballot Status: Pre-Ballot 146 (conversion of BRs): Ben to revise
this as a regular ballot soon. 

Jeremy said the domain validation proposal is not ready for a ballot yet,
it's still being discussed. He is looking for comments. 

Doug said he is working on a revision to Ballot 148 (issuer field
correction) which will reset the clock on this ballot.

4.       EV Wildcards and 3 year EV certs: A lengthy discussion was held
during the F2F meeting. Jeremy said he would either like to lower the
validity of all certs to 27 months (which he felt was a better practice) or
extend the EV cert validity to 3 years.  Kirk said he could support either
way. Eddy said the same and would prefer EV for 3 years. Dean said we should
hear what customers have to say. Eddy said the CA should do a risk
assessment first. Jeremy said this would affect the public more than it
affects CAs and will post something on the public list for feedback.  With
regard to EV Wildcard, Jeremy said he is in favor of EV Wildcards since this
seems to be one of the barriers of adopting EV and doesn't see much risk to
doing this. Eddy suggested that we have this discussion on the mailing list
to keep track of the comments. 

5.       Dean asked for the minute takers from the F2F meeting to finish
updating their minutes and post them to the wiki. They were almost all

6.       Validation Working Group: No update

7.       Code Signing update: No update

8.       Policy Review WG: Ballot coming out soon.

9.       Info Sharing WG: Meeting scheduled for Friday morning.

10.   Any other business: Zurich meeting: Dean asked everyone to respond to
the email asking for headcount so reservations can be made. Also, a response
to the email about a possible meeting at Netcraft the weekend before was
sent out and Dean is looking for interested parties for that.     

11.   Next meeting will be April 2nd.
