Yes, that last part is what I’m concerned about.  We said they need to be re-chartered within 6 months, but I think we dropped the ball on including a mechanism to do so.

What are we going to do about continuity of existing working groups (old terminology, not new)?  Is it necessary for the Server Certificate Working Group Charter to say anything about sub-working groups (I wish we hadn't used the existing term "working group" to mean something new, it is going to be very confusing).

Section 5.3.4 states that "legacy" working groups can be terminated immediately or must be rechartered within 6 months.


There is no such thing as a "sub-working group" under the new bylaws. I think this means that there is no mechanism for an existing WG like Validation or Network Security to bring a proposal to the Server Certificate WG for discussion and voting?
