Provreg Meeting minutes

1. WG status (Ed Lewis)
 - Core Documents:  In IESG process in various stages
 - Other documents - no discussion
 - 1 Unsolicited individual submission
 - Next target:  move core drafts to draft standard as per RFC 2026
   1.  Patrik F:  We need 2 independent client and 2 servers to test
    (all must work together)

2. Last Call Comments on EPP drafts (Scott Hollenbeck)
 - Requirements Draft:
  1. WG last call completed
  2. Comments by IESG in Feb, completed in Feb.
  3. Waiting IESG
 - EPP core drafts
  1. Last call ends 29 March - few comments for additions or corrections
 - Questions
Patrik:  IESG or AD has not received any more comments than those
mentioned in the meeting.

3. In-process documents
 - BEEP - new revision available in the future.
  1. Comment:  Is anyone planning any implementation on this draft?
 - Container draft - will not be continued.
 - SMTP draft - Still being worked on (rumor).  Some interest in seeing
this as a draft.
 - Push feature draft - missing description document.  No one has
   responsibility for that draft.  If Push feature is desired, please
submit an
   individual submission draft.

4. Implementations (about 5 )
 - RTK (Sourceforge project) release Java version of registry tool
  1. Different releases for different levels of EPP(draft revisions) -
plan on
     restructuring releases into one package
 - Nominum:  .au registry release.
  1. Adding different extensions than listed in draft
  2. first country code to use EPP
 - Verisign
  1. Non-core effort (smaller domains)  using EPP for registry
  2. When EPP reaches RFC status, .com/net/org will go to EPP
  3. Registry (Verisign) will not hold customer information/contact.
That will still
     reside at the registrar level.
  4. All RRP based registration systems will eventually migrate to EPP
once contract expires
 - .sg registry
  1. assumed that one status for domain name
 - NIC Mexico:
  1. looking at rolling EPP out.  But using other means to authenticate

5. Registry-specific extensions (H. Liu)
 - .us TLD implementation for public review
 - Informational - may not be WG draft, but informational as an
extension to EPP.  Test to
   see if EPP really is extensible and still remain interpretational.
 - Differences from draft specs:
  1. Collect NEXUS info for usTLD registration
  2. 2 new parameters:  AppPurpose and NexusCatagory
 - Alternatives:  Name-value pairs or new XML schema definition
 - Comments:
  1. Where scheme modified?  ContactObject extension field

6. Scott H.  draft on EPP and DNSSEC/ENUM an individual submission, but
   remain independent submission (not DNSEXT) and hoped to be
   included in DNSOP WG

7. Next Steps
 - Need for a BCP/Informational RFC on how these extensions should
  1. moved to list
 - Interoperability test:  of core protocol specs, not extensions.
  1. When:  wait until we get RFC status  -  winner
 - No BEEP/SMTP comments

General comments/questions
1. if we start talking about extensions - rechartering necessary?
2. Question of "status of command" request message - what it means and
the status of the draft.
   - Author not present, so no formal answer available.
