The RFC Series Oversight Committee (RSOC) will discuss whether the code should be changed to match the specifications, or the specification should be changed to match the code.

Robert Sparks added that the outstanding contract items are the PDF-A viewer and updates to the idnits tool.

3. CIPE Workshop

This item was deferred to the next IAB teleconference so that Christian Huitema and/or Brian Trammell could participate in the discussion.

4. ESCAPE Workshop

Mark Nottingham reported that the ESCAPE Workshop Program Committee has decided to postpone the workshop until at least late February because they are still looking for a location to host the workshop. They are looking for a location somewhere in the media world or at a journalism school. Ted Hardie suggested that they may also want to look into hosting the workshop at the Internet Society offices in Virginia.

Martin Thomson reported that he attended the recent public hearing on the Australian Assistance and Access Bill. Much of the testimony focused on how the proposed legislation would break encryption in ways that are undesirable.

This item was deferred to the next IAB teleconference so that Melinda Shore could participate in the discussion.
