3. The agenda was reviewed


4. The minutes from the October 28th meeting were approved. The F2F minutes
will be reviewed by the chairs, and minute takers whose sections are still
missing will be alerted. 


5. Forum Infrastructure Subcommittee update: Jos Purvis provided the update.

*	Corey Bonnell has implemented a summary bot which pulls items
together from github and sends an email out to the list mailers, so people
can see what's going on without having to go to github
*	Website: The group will work with the WordPress tools and plug-ins
to allow embedding from github repositories to the website directly
*	Discussed creating style guidelines for ballots and minute content.
Would like to start work on this for consistency
*	Reviewed flow charts for ballot process. Need to clearly identify
responsibilities and dates. A "ballot shepherd" would make sure the ballot
process is followed (similar to a parliamentarian).
*	The membership spreadsheet was discussed. Although a database
management tool would make this easier, it would take a lot of time and
effort to implement. Hence it was decided to keep going with the spreadsheet
and look at front end forms that could make it easier to work with.


6. Code Signing Working Group update: Bruce Morton gave the report

*	The group reviewed ballot SC50 and the potential impacts to the
*	The group is moving forward with converting the CSBRs to RFC 3647
*	CSC 11 has completed IPR review
*	CSC 12 is in IPR review
*	The main topic of discussion was Subscriber Key Protection and the
proposed ballot. Ian provided another draft and good progress is being made


7. S/MIME Working Group update: Stephen Davidson gave the update:

*	Discussion around delegated 3rd parties (Enterprise RAs and External
SubCAs). This should be similar to the requirements in the TLS BRs, with
similar roles and stipulations
*	Good progress being made in drafting the S/MIME BRs. Currently in
github with progress on cert profiles


8. Next F2F meeting: Dean announced the next meeting will be in Salt Lake
City, hosted by DigiCert, on Feb 22-24, 2022. Accommodations will be made
for remote participation as well. A discussion around safety protocols
including vaccine card requirements, testing requirements and health
measures took place. Dean was meeting with the event planner later in the
day and will bring up these concerns. Stats around infection
rates/hospitalizations were requested.
