  • Summary:

    There seems to be a discrepancy in the changes proposed to CSIIOP and CSI modules. The draft document has identical changes to both. I think the intent of the Errata was to have only one, just switch them from CSIIOP to CSI. However, Brian's convience document doesn't show the change. Now, the draft document ptc/2004-01-01 that we are voting on has both. What to do? Should that be represented by another document, namely CSI, with it's changes, just like 2004-01-02 is? Cheers, -Polar

    Yeah, I see the problem. Yet another consequence of the adopted spec changing existing spec without calling out the change in the section meant to identify changes to existing specs. So it looks like the fix involves: 1. Section 1.9.2 and 1.9.3 in ptc/04-01-01 [henceforth referred to as document A] should disappear. 2. The first half of section of document A starting from the second para of the section and upto and including the last but one paragraph on page 1-20, should be appended to Section 24.2.5 "Identity Token Format" of Chapter 24 of Core with the title (that is the CSIv2 Chapter)[henceforth referred to as document B]. Also append a row to table 24-2 with info about ITTCompundToken. 3. The IDL in section 1.9.3 of document A should be merged properly into the IDL for the CSI module that appears in section 24.9.2 document B. 4. The addition to CSIIOP IDL as it appears in Section 1.5.2 of document A should be merged appropriately into the IDL for CSIIOP in section 24.9.3 of document B. 5. In document B insert a section "TAG_IIOP_SEC_TRANS" with a two liner explanation of what this tag is together with the IDL for it from section 1.5.2 of document A. I'd suggest that we file this as an issue and resolve it in the FTF roughly along the lines suggested above.
