Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] proto-GLEPS for Tree-signing, take 2
Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2008 08:42:48
So I'm not going to directly attach the GLEPs again this time, however
I am just going to link to them, and summarize the changes:

- Add mention of how to defeat the mirror replay attacks from Stork@UArizona.
- Clarify wording of the UNCOVERED=ALL-COVERED set math, and why it's
  important (genone)
- Add a timestamp to the metamanifest.
- Mention that it can be implemented without the new Manifest2

- Update the exclusion lists.
- Exclusion list behavior during strict validation.
- Fix typos.

- Prototype of the MetaManifest generation.
- Doesn't sign yet, but does include the timestamp.
- Uses existing Manifest2 types.
- See header for existing runtime info - it's quite fast.

I'd like to ask for any comments to be in to me by July 14th 23:59UTC.
After that I'd like to post the GLEPs to the gentoo-dev mailing list.
