Subject: [csaf] No physical presence of Stefan during the meeting today
Dear Omar,
Dear members,

although I will not join the call today per audio and video, I will take care to register my attendance to document the fact that I support whatever the members decide during the meeting.

I think the time between the meetings was one hell of a ride and we came very far.

As always in my experience many new aspects become visible when approaching the goal. That should not make us nervous or less confident to really finish the publication of the CSAF 2.0 soon.

To the contrary I would find it suspicious if we would spend only copy editing for the final weeks because of many reasons. One cannot assume to just "sit out" the forms that real people than shall use in real life to communicate and mitigate danger to some. We should make the shape pf things as easy and clear to use as possible.

Specifically, here, one reason is the late opened opportunity to support SBOM endeavours under the auspices of the NTIA in the USA. It helped to ease identification per simple hashes PURLs, and even extension fields as well as fine new suggested linkae structures brought by Thomas.

Another reason is, that some of us really started providing tools and as usual "paper is patient" (as we say in German, translated) while using theory in practice often brings a lot of valuable feedback not accessible when only writing a schema and prose.

Especially the usability in the communities - I think - was already per the latest changes and will be further enhanced enormously during these last weeks.

On procedural business:

I prepared and sent some mails to our mailinglist today to support the progress in formal matters - these are just offerings and shall not complicate TC business in any way. If someone has something more fast and elegant to achiev the same goal, please ignore my proposals.

Editorial matters:

My semantic contributions are in issues and comments on the pull requests already available for everyone.

Final words :-)

In ending, I especially want to encourage Langley to remain editor as this means a lot to me. It is not always in the amount of words changed that an editor supports the documentation of the will of a group, but also the standing in for it to maintain progress even when it is not clear for a long time if the goals aimed at will be reached.

All the best and I look forward to meet you all on github, mailing list, and elsewhere soon.

Tomorrow is another day.

All the best,
