Dear CFRG participants,

After some active conversations on the mailing list, there seems to be
support for taking on work related to threshold signatures at the CFRG.
This email commences a 3-week call for adoption for the topic of "Threshold
Signatures" that will end on October 28th, 2020:

There are two drafts that have been submitted for consideration on this
topic:
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-komlo-frost/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-hallambaker-threshold-sigs/

Please give your views on the following questions:
a) should this topic be adopted by the CFRG as a work item, and if so
b) should one or both of these documents should be considered as a starting
point for this work
c) are you willing to help work on this item and/or review it

Please reply to this email (or in exceptional circumstances, you can email
CFRG chairs directly at cfrg-chairs@ietf.org).

Thank you,
Nick (for the chairs)
