Date: Tue, 4 Dec 90 17:54:38 -0500
From: John T Kohl <jtkohl@MIT.EDU>
To: krbdev@MIT.EDU

NEXT MEETING: 13 Dec 1990, 3pm, E40-316

Things due for next meeting:

        don/tytso:      document on v4/v5 compatibility/upgrade stuff
        jfc:            user2user document (interface spec?)

Status reports:
        jon: playing with a "hammer" program to generate and test KDC
entries; slow progress on admin server.

        raeburn: finished up stdio ccache stuff; updated linkage code
to allow easy replacement of all ccache .o files (no need to link in our
stuff if you provide your own)

	don: working on draft of v4/v5 migration issues
                v4/v5 kdc code working, modulo weird rlogin bug
		will help jon with admin server as time allows

        jfc: thinking about user2user stuff; will have document for next
week's meeting.  Also working on random bugfixing/maintenance, some DES
optimization.  We pointed out that 1) our DES code sucks and 2) it's not
critical to work on this at the moment.

	jtkohl: RFC work, fixing CRC-32, other minor bugfixing, etc.

	tytso: kdb5_edit well underway: v4srvtab done, dump code done,
restore code is next, and kpropd after that. Also working on v4/v5
conversion document.

Time available:
        jon:  all of development time/50% of time, whichever is less
        raeburn: none this week (zephyr stuff); future unclear
        don: most (3/4 or more)
	jfc: "more time", about 10-15hr/week
	tytso: 50% 

Various discussions about OSF relationship, if/how that affects our
"release" schedule.  Eventual decision: ship another alpha-test before
year's end.

Deliverables for next alpha-test distribution (i.e. before 19 December,
preferably earlier):
	next-draft code changes (jtkohl?)
	KDC v4 compatibility (mostly done, don)
	slave server (tytso)
	principal "hammering" stuff (jon)
	user2user code (jfc)
	improved RFC (jtkohl)

	maybe: build notes, kerberized Berkeley pop stuff

systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and

		       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.
