Notes and Errata

Comments from UK fed:


- Section 4.3 of RFC2350 uses the colour designation from TLP version 1. If we are to

support both versions of TMLP and follow Postel's Principle, eduGAIN-CSIRT would accept

information that comes in with designations from either version (TLP:RED, TLP:AMBER,

TLP:AMBER+STRICT, TLP:GREEN, TLP:WHITE, TLP:CLEAR) and send information out only with

designations from TLPv2.


- Section 3.3 of the Terms of Reference states "business hours (9x5 CET/CEST)" should be

made consistent with the information in RFC2350v1, which is "hours of operation are Monday

- Friday 09:00-17:00 (CET/CEST), except public holidays"

will be nominated by the GEANT project." Should it be the eduGAIN Executive Committee that
