Part 2: Advanced features

Ian asked what we had outstanding as we had mad no progress for  the last few weeks due to peoples absence.

Jacques recalled that we need some rewording to eliminate the requirement for a role attribute and still have outstanding completion of the bundling.

Discussion on accepting that V37 of the draft spec was the “current definitive” version and a quick review by Jacques to identify the general updates required.  The bundling section need to be reviewed and a final decision on the bundling rules about what are the restrictions of messages that can be bundled. Jacques will update the spec and post an update for comment and ensure common understanding has been reached.

Dale joined the call and a discussion reviewing the proposals for the role/next issue resumed form previous discussions, Jacques agreed to try and draft a proposal to check consensus.

AS4-SC Report

A call earlier in the week discussed some issues and Jacques has posted an update to the list. This appears to be almost complete and should only require a short review and not a full 60 day.  The conformance document and section still need completion.

Actions and issues
