Hi Steve, thanks for taking care of that. We're indeed a bit late in our
reflections on this matter and we should come up with a plan for both
Wheezy (if still feasible?) and the future. I unfortunately won't be
able to make it for the BoF, as I've to leave shortly after DebCamp. But
I encourage everyone to participate in the BoF and please work on a
report or minutes so that we can have a discussion on list (either here
or on -boot) afterwards.

For those who are not familiar with the crux of secure boot, here are a
few recent references on the matter:

- Fedora's plans http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/12368.html
- Ubuntu's plans
  (with a more technical discussion of it at
   https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2012-June/035445.html )
- FSF's paper
