Anti-Trust statement read, no changes to the agenda


1.       Infrastructure subcommittee update given by Jos

1.       The anti-spam measures weren't on and have been turned on. All of
the emails for the infrastructure group are going to infrabot, so if people
want to join the  email list, they should ask. The group is also working are
getting rid of bounced email address. If there are any issues with not
getting emails, reach out to the infrastructure working groups. Check with
the corporate email providers as they may have done some blockers as well. 

2.       Tried to get digest emails working on Gitlab. Have a test website
for the revisions to the CABForum site. 

3.       Started to dig into membership management and the membership spread

4.       There is some discussion around interested parties and getting
their input. Wayne has added information on the site that becoming an
interested party is the right way to go about it. 


2.       Code Signing Working Group given by Bruce

1.       Discussed how timestamping works and whether it is in the charter.
Nothing has been resolved yet. Discussion will continue in the working

2.       Restore clean up ballot: having some challenges with version
control and moving forward. 


3.       SMIME working group given by Stephen

1.       Going through using the TLS baseline as a model for the SMIME.
There is language regarding government entities. Is the content in section
8.4 still relevant and is it relevant for CAs that have the email trust bit?
Will be reaching out to CAs

2.       Doing some research on how different consumer products take in
SMIME certificates and other fields. 

3.       Ongoing discussion related to the SAN field, in particular the use
of the other name. This would be related to the legacy profile rather than
the strict profile. Continue discussion in calls this upcoming week. 

4.       Targeting having a rough draft before the June face-to-face. 


4.       June Face to Face

1.       Had discussion on different dates and time structure. Will be
setting a meeting with working groups to discuss. 

2.       One guest speaker has already been found


5.       Any other business? 

1.       Dimitris: Is there any plans on tackling the working group charter
alignment? The charters are not aligned, particularly the SMIME. 

a.       Not aware of any discussion but is a good idea. A task group has
been proposed to do this and will be scheduled for the future. 


6.       Next call is May 13th
