[cabfpub] Code Signing Working Group

I'm sorry but the Governance Working Group needs to meet as late in the day as 
possible to accommodate dial in members from the west coast. Hence, I can't 
move the other groups.

I notice with disappointment that the Code Signing Working Group remains on 
the draft agenda for Bilbao. In my previous email, I laid out what seems to be 
a non-disruptive and accommodating way forward:

This seems a better solution than the formality of a ballot, and I hope we can 
agree quickly on this course.

Looking at the agenda, it doesn't seem complicated to remove Code Signing, 
move everything up (perhaps reordering to fit the blocks) and adjourn an hour 
early. Then, with Inigo's permission for use of the room, anyone who wants to 
discuss the Code Signing document in a side meeting can stay behind to do so. 
And I'm sure they can write up and circulate information on what they 
discussed in lieu of an update in the meeting on the following day.

Dean: please can you make the appropriate changes to the agenda?
