0) next meeting 8 January 1991, 3:30->4:30 in E40-316 [Have a safe &
happy New Year's holiday]

1) status reports:
	jfc: AWOL
	jtkohl: RFC protocol changes should be finished now; some
editing remains.  code to implement RFC changes is underway.
	jon: was temporarily blocked by some library bugs, but should be
able to progress now.  principal database "hammer" should be ready by
next week.
	tytso: kdb_edit load & dump now work.  doing some type-check
changes to kdb stuff to make sure encrypted & unencrypted keys don't get
confused. working on sendauth/recvauth for use in kprop/kpropd; general
form won't be ready with this release of slave code.
	don: has been out sick & otherwise busy; will probably help out
with assembling some documentation.

2) other things:
	Jeff will look at pseudo-code for string_to_key and verify (1)
the pseudo-code matches the C code and (2) the algorithm really is
non-invertible.
	other DES implementations exist (e.g. Ferguson (sp?)), but to
avoid distribution hassles, we'll probably only provide "glue" code to
those libraries, and let other sites pick up the code directly from the
author(s).

	alpha3 tentative date is Thursday 20 December (for release; code
should be done by 19 December)
	beta-test might be sometime in late Jan/early Feb; really
depends on when we think the protocol is really "nailed down."

		       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 vs IBM.
