Jim Schaad was a major commenter on draft-ietf-cbor-tags-oid, and we all went into shock when he passed.  So nothing has happened since the below update on 2020-09-30.

I believe that the draft is pretty much done, not the least due to Jim’s ever so helpful comments.

What is left to do is:

— tick off and delete the yellow editors’ comment at the end of Section 5:
https://raw.githack.com/cbor-wg/cbor-oid/master/draft-ietf-cbor-tags-oid.html#name-tag-factoring-with-oid-arra — i.e., agree that we now have reached the right level of complexity here.
— discuss whether we need the detail in https://raw.githack.com/cbor-wg/cbor-oid/master/draft-ietf-cbor-tags-oid.html#section-9.1 — conversion between BER and dotted decimal is not exactly the focus of this draft any longer, and the third paragraph of Section 9 (https://raw.githack.com/cbor-wg/cbor-oid/master/draft-ietf-cbor-tags-oid.html#section-9-3) already contains a good warning about this.

We could discuss this later today in the interim, generate a -02 with the above (and a few editorial) changes, and go for WGLC (which should get us any further reviews we need).

Grüße, Carsten
