Dave G moved and Jeff seconded the approval of the November 26, 2012 minutes. The motion was approved.

Action Item Review

Steven reviewed the open action items.

Liaison Reports

Steven reported that IEEE Standards Board has approved our PAR extension request. We are now approved through the end of 2013.


Dave G noted that the encryption envelope issues are desirable but may not be required. Steven noted there may be remaining issues following the version updates.

Jeff asked about feedback from 1076 on the rights syntax, Target January draft for liaison review.

License Management

Dave G reported the first draft has been distributed, and that one of the two Altera requests have been incorporated. Dave G indicated that he has a proof-of-concept implementation of the licensing proxy service that can be made available.

Key Management

Steven reported no further activity since the draft which Joe incorporated into his update.

Rights Management

Dave G is working on resolving digest calculation issues, and is looking for additional feedback. The proposed syntax for conditional rights are of particular interest for early review.

Other Business

Steven reported on Statement of Work changes for 2013, and budgeting for technical editing services. An assessment of $4200 per entity is required in 2013 to make the budget work, given an extension of 3 months of draft development activity and the loss of one expected entity payment in 2012.

Jeff moved, Dave G seconded approval of a Technical Editing assessment for 2013 at $4200 per entity, to be balloted via email, and upon approval invoiced in January and due in 60 days. Steven will conduct an email vote to be concluded by the end of December.
