Dimitris is on vacation, so Dean led the call.

      1. Roll Call

The Roll Call was taken.

      2. Read Antitrust Statement

The Antitrust Statement was read by Ben WIlson.

      3. Review Agenda

No changes to the agenda were noted. It was noted that Neil Dunbar 
volunteered to take minutes for the next SCWG and Forum teleconference.

      4. Approval of minutes from last teleconference

Accepted without objections.

      5. Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee Update

Jos Purvis provided an update. There was no meeting this past week. Jos 
reported they are working on a password repository for access to the 
infrastructure, listserv, etc. They are also discussing separating the 
GitHub repository by documents. This will help as we continue to add 
working groups.

Several groups have asked for a GitHub “refresher”. Jos volunteered to 
conduct a demo and explain the procedures in a 1 hour class. Contact Jos 
if interested.

The group is soliciting feedback on the new wiki, now that we are 1 year 
into it.

Dean asked if the group could look at making it easy to update members 
registries and mailing lists as the current process is cumbersome for 
the volunteers to manage. Jos said once the mailing system is migrated 
to AWS, then they can look at making this happen. Ryan said this was 
discussed on other calls and confirmed that it is an issue.

      6. Code Signing Working Group Update

      Dean gave the report. The combined EV and Baseline document ballot
      (CSCWG-2) passed and is in a 30 day IPR review. In the meantime,
      the group is reviewing the “parking lot list” and is preparing to
      make any corrections/changes necessary for a future ballot.

      7. S/MIME Working Group Update

Stephen Davidson provided the update. The first real meeting was held 
yesterday (since the initial kickoff). New members were voted in: 
iTrusChina, SSC and Chungwa Telecom as Certificate Issuers and Teletrust 
as an Interested Party. The overall approach was laid out and the 
decision was made to begin with Certificate Profiles. Examples are being 
gathered to see what work has been done in various standards and other 
companies. The next meeting is August 19^th .

      8. Any Other Business

Dean stated that he had some folks look at the CA/B Forum documents to 
check for language that should be updated given the movement in the 
technology industry to deprecate certain words like master/slave, 
whitelist/blacklist, etc. The review found only 3 places in the BRs, EV 
Guidelines and Code Signing guidelines that should be updated. He will 
send a note to the list with the suggested corrections.

      9. Next call

The next call will take place on August 20, 2020 at 11:00am Eastern Time.
