5. Results of Membership applications of MSC Trustgate and iTrusChina
The Server Certificate Working Group approved the applications of MSC
Trustgate and iTrusChina as Associate Members in the Root Certificate
Issuer category with a duration of 12 months. Before this time expires,
the SCWG will re-examine the associate membership status of these two CAs.
6. Forum Infrastructure Working Group update
Jos provided the report. The WG discussed the fact that some Members
would like to know which representatives have access to which resources
(wiki, management mailing lists, public lists with posting rights, etc).
Access to these resources should be granular so that a Member can choose
the different access privileges of their representatives per resource.
This seems difficult to maintain. As a first step, the Infrastructure WG
will send a message to the management list with the access information
of various resources per member.

We had some difficulties with migrating the mailing lists which was a

The public web site (wordpress) will be scheduled for migration along

page that keeps track of those improvements that will be proposed in the
8. Follow-up on new S/MIME WG Charter
Nothing to report.
9. Approval of F2F 47 Agenda
Dimitris went through the CA/B Forum plenary agenda for the next F2F.
There were no objections to the current draft agenda.
10. Any Other Business
The new Bylaws (version 2.2) have been published on the web site.
Dimitris has asked all Members to review and abide with the new Bylaws.
The doodle poll for Guangzhou resulted on picking the dates in November,
so the meeting will take place November 5-7, 2019.
Dimitris sent a proposal to the management list about acknowledging the
antitrust rules during registration of the F2F meeting so we don't have
to the antitrust statement at the beginning of every meeting. There was
agreement that this is currently not supported by the Bylaws, we cannot
accept it. However, it might be added on the issues to discuss in an
upcoming bylaws update. The membership criteria need some clarifications
Doug mentioned that Globalsign is planning on hosting in Tokyo in
October 2020. The summer Olympics are a little before that and
Globalsign wants to lock in dates as in order to locate a venue as soon
as possible. It's not too early to start a doodle poll with available
dates so Globalsign can get some initial feedback for preferable dates.
Dough agreed to send out some possible dates.
