Hi All,

Barbara and I chatted about the discussion in this thread,
and here's our summary, please correct us if we've gotten
stuff wrong.

- On item 1, work on the security considerations of
draft-ietf-homenet-simple-naming will proceed as usual.

- On item 2, (the perimeter security draft milestone in
our charter), we don't see anyone stepping up right now
to do that work, so unless someone does in the next few
days, we'll have a chat with our AD about whether or not
it makes sense to remove that milestone from the charter,
or do something else. We'll report back on that at
IETF-101 or before.

- On item 3, (profiling HNCP and Babel security stuff
for homenet), it seems like folks would like to wait a
bit and see how at least the Babel work progresses, and
maybe we should have a discussion at IETF-101 about when
it makes sense to start work on profiling what gets picked
in the Babel WG, for use in homenets, and whether there's
any chance of near-term progress on HNCP security
mechanisms for homenets. We'll also allocate a slot in
our draft agenda for a presentation about anima enrolment
(as offered by Michael Richardson, assuming he's still up
for doing that:-) to provide some additional background
for that discussion.

Again, thanks for the discussion so far, and please
do correct the above if we've mis-interpreted the
sense of the list.

Barbara and Stephen.
