agl: I think we are there.
... JC and Akshay need to take a look.

tony: we need to land this is FIDO land

agl: it works for U2F authenticators


agl: still pause, need proof it works


nina: it has been approved.

tony: what do we do with the build process


agl: looks like on change. we can merge after taking care of that.

tony: some untriaged PRs


tony: was discussed at face to face - enums

agl: think this is spiritually good some tech that needs to be addressed

tony: jeffH look at this.


agl: build fix, updates python version, david says need something in FIDO land

... with dash create, ddash get

agl: that was my understanding.

tony: we will rename

jeffH: we will modify feature policyu
... I will take a look


agl: this is my homework. worth having group look at this.
... do we want sig counters

akshay: I think we do.

agl: we could put up aaguid
... the public key is the hardest, but others in binary format

tony: this should not break anybody

agl: only adding stuff

jbradley: can ask for direct attestation, but it would be zero

agl: it will match the data.

jbradley: actual data is likely real attestation.
... what is definition of real data.

agl: re-expose data they already had - nothing nerw

shane: there is all sorts of stuff in there like cred ID the authenticator extensions

agl: have ID number, will not touch extensions

shane: as RP developer, I can imagine for simplistic RP without attestation, I likely won't use it.

tony: no additional work.

agl: we discussed it yesterday on FIDO call
... if anyone needs a review I can give it.

... I couldn't find timeline on that
... see milestone LC rec and CR rec and wd03
