Anti-spam WG draft agenda RIPE 40
- Date: Thu, 10 May 2001 15:35:57 +0100
Here are a few ideas for the next WG meeting; but I need some
input and all comments are welcome.
I hope to have an agreed outline next week; we can fill in the
details nearer the time.
I would particularly like to hear your views on tutorials. There
seem to be some people who are unfamiliar with anti-spam work
and precautions and who might find this helpful.
The questions are:
What topics? I have invented some in the skeleton agenda
below but you may have some better or more specific
ideas. Should we aim for one, two or three topics?
Who can deliver the tutorials? Please offer if you can, or
suggest other people I might ask.
The other new item is D, on security. Those who were at the
Bologna meeting will remember that this was mentioned in the WG
and in the plenary. I have written three headings but they are
just one possibility. We could decide that it's a good idea to
extend the WG activity to cover all of mail security, or we may
think that a separate group should look at security in a different
way, leaving us to make progress on spam alone. Either way we need
to say something at the next meeting, and it might be useful to
have talked about it on the list before then.
