No changes to the agenda were noted.

      4. Approval of minutes from previous teleconference

No objections to approval of minutes.

      5. Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee update

Nobody who attended the last Infrastructure Subcommittee meeting was on 
this call, thus no update.


      6. Code Signing Working Group update

Dean: Out of the previous week's meeting there is a Ballot in Voting 
Period currently, to approve the combination of the EV Guidelines and 
the non-EV Code Signing Guidelines into one document. Voting started 
earlier this week and is now in progress, all members of the WG are 
hereby urged to vote sooner rather than later.

The WG has a TODO list of items that the WG is planning to change in a 
future update to the document and is proceeding with working on these 
items. We expect a presentation from Microsoft about high risk requests 
in a future meeting.

The WG also transitioned over to the new WebEx without problems.

      7.  S/MIME Working Group update

Stephen: The S/MIME WG's charter requires the WG to be bootstrapped, so 
you may recall a call for declarations of interest to participate. After 
the first meeting of the WG yesterday, July 22, we finalized the WG with 
19 Certificate Issuers, 2 Certificate Consumers, 4 Associate Members and 
3 Interested Parties. I was confirmed as Chair of the Group, and we 
deferred electing a Vice Chair for a week or two, in order to allow 
people to consider volunteering. The Group will be meeting again on 
August 5, at 11:00 EST, maintaining a two week rythm. Currently there is 
a call open for members who may be aware of related standards that might 
have a bearing on the groups work, such as the GMail certificate policy, 
and standards that exist from ETSI. The group is still open for 
additional members, there are some prospect members. The charter is 
quite specific as to the objectives and deliverables of the group. The 
group will start with some topics that may be familiar to other CA/B 
Forum documents, such as "how one goes about validating email control" 
and certificate profiles. Anyone interested please reach out, special 
thanks to the Infrastructure Subcommittee.

Robin: We missed the initial call to join the S/MIME WG, who do we mail 
to join?
Stephen: That would be to me, or to the questions email list.

Dimitris: We have established a management list for the WG, and there is 
of course a public list, similiar to our other Working Groups. Anybody 
outside the forum can join the public list and access its archives.

      8. Any Other Business

Dimitris: I would like to mention that elections are coming up, I am 
working with Dean and Wayne on some informative mails to be sent on 1st 
week of August. The Chair nominations will start at August 17. You might 
want to start thinking about this process, we will need a Chair and a 
Vice-Char for every working group but the S/MIME working group which was 
just created. The whole process is documented on the Wiki, "Officer 
Elections". Feel free to reach out to me or the other officers for 
questions related to the duties, or f.x. for the time required to fill a 
certain role.

Daniela: What was decided for the next F2F?
Dimitris: It was decided to go virtual.
Daniela: So for signup, just sign up on the Wiki?
Dimitris: That is very soon, we're not really

Dean: We developed the ground rules for the meeting but haven't send 
them out yet because everyone would just forget about them, I plan to 
send them out just a few weeks before the meeting, does that seem 

Dimitris: I have already posted them on the wiki... First I would please 
like everybody to register for the meeting. Right now the Ground Rules 
are a bit of in draft status, we will get them more solid the closer we 
get to the meeting, any proposals for changes or additions are very much 
welcome. We will send a reminder when we get closer to the meeting.

Still have to do some demos and tryouts with Josh to figure out the best 
setup and configs for this large meeting.
