- Started CAR discussion to check on whether the discussion had converged. Agreed with A Guarise that we could work with the existing document but this stimulated a new discussion within EMI and there has been another iteration. Pressure from Unicore to adopt RFC2253 instead of the X500 naming of DNs.
