IETF

IETF meeting next week. No dev. conference call.

Sam
GSS-preauth. IANA. PAD?
Simo
Hadn't had time to update PAD
Sam
Lots that won't need discussion. des-die-die-die, camellia to IESG soon. Chairs looking for responses from Tom and Greg. Referrals number checks. IPR stuff.
Tom
PKINIT algorithm agility -- some issues with ASN.1 etc. will send mail.
Tom
Probably too late to deal with export cred / partial context this meeting?
Sam
Yeah, try to aim for next

Other status

Will
New mkey patch pushed.
Greg
Looks about ready
Simo
Want to send GSS patches. Nico wanted to review function sigs.

Further discussion to kitten WG

Greg
Tests?
Simo
Yes. Small C program with python.

Doc build

Greg
Docs in rst_source. Replace existing Texinfo. HTML and manpages. Content review. Would like to do build system. Built manpages to be checked into repository. Developers and sysadmins can check out and install manpages without needing Sphinx. Release tarballs... built as for website. Paths get e.g. PREFIX/... linking to glossary / description of default paths. Build target to use configured paths for building documentation.

...

Tom
Could do @PREFIX@ in manpage build.
Greg
src/doc pulls sources from doc/... src/doc/Makefile.in subsumes doc/Makefile.

Python

Tom
Python minimum version.
Greg
itertools. We previously needed a feature that was new in 2.6. Require 2.4 for tests.
Simo
Build bits should rely on older stuff; tests can be newer.
Greg
Currently only the tests require Python.
Tom
Default Python for medium to large scripts in source tree?

general agreement

Greg
Add stuff to platform assumptions.

Planning

Tom
Would like continuous / ongoing input to roadmap for release planning... let us know if stuff is missing, priorities, etc.
