0. all krb5dev activity is recorded in the krb5dev discuss meeting.  You are
all expected to read it regularly.

0a.  /mit/krb5/doc/alpha/ has some notes for alpha test sites which
you should read; this includes a whirlwind tour of the source tree

1. discussion of time available to work on Kerberos work:
	Don		20-30h/wk
	John Carr	10h/wk
	Ken		8-10h/wk
	Ted		1/2 time once employment straightened out
	Jon		?
	Barry		?
	John Kohl	20h/wk

2. discussion of items needing work, and who volunteers/is volunteered
to do them:

	all:	clean up any XXX in code (by fixing code, not by deleting
	don:	kdc v4 compat; kdc vs. replay cache/UDP issues
	tytso:	slave server & propagation
	bcn:	multi-thread warnings/improved pseudo code.
	jtkohl:	multi-homed hosts; forged authenticators
	raeburn: STDIO-based ccache; thread-safe rcache
	jfc:	user2user api proposal
	jon:	study admin program/server needs; recommend

3. other items:

can we eventually create a v4 interface to v5 code, so that clients just
re-link? (on the back burner for now...v4 at KDC is current
high-priority conversion path)

Barry suggests 'unbundling' ss/et/imake/etc so that they can be
picked up separately, so other sites only need one copy.

discussion of conversion of existing admin_server tools (may or
may not be worthwhile); whether anything other than a kdb_init &
admin_server are needed.

set-up of a test krb5 kdc

4.  action items:

* all:  work on code; should be both ANSI and common-C compilable

* jfc/bjaspan: come back with user2user api proposal

* jtkohl: find a place to set up a test krb5 kdc

		       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 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
