John began the meeting with a short introduction noting that the krb5
work will be a cooperative effort between Athena and Network Services.
The responsible managers from those organizations are Peter Roden and
Jeffrey Schiller.

The encoding "on the wire" will use ASN.1; much of the C code to deal
with this is already written (with the help of the ISODE tools).

The proposed work split is:
libkrb (MIT)
libdes retrofit (possibly Rich Salz/BBN)
libkdb (MIT) (retrofit current?)
libkadm (MIT)
libtf (Dan Kolkowitz/Stanford, Dan Bernstein/NYU(?))
libos (MIT) (part of libkrb?)
applications (everybody)
	infinite :-) 1 week per

Lots of discussion of the proposed interface, leading to an agreement to
come back on Thursday with specific comments for modifications.
Some salient points:
	+ put all the O/S specific include files into an , to
	  ease porting
	+ there must be some form of backward compatibility at the KDC
	  (and presumably at application servers).
	+ the interface spec should be sorted to group the functions
	  into natural sub-groups
	+ we should try to make the KDC somewhat portable, but we
	  needn't make it completely portable to non-UNIX systems (i.e.
	  don't do things that make it non-portable)

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM

business. See SCO v IBM.
