     25I do not think I can make any coherent case at 5:30am even if I
     26somehow manage to make it to the meeting, but would like some feedback
     27on one thing:
     28
     29Topic:  'ecdsa-sig' management interface command that I proposed (the
     30patch for supporting EC certs with external key being reviewed by
     31Arne).
     32Ref: https://patchwork.openvpn.net/project/openvpn2/list/?series=126
     33
     34We currently have rsa-sig for RSA signatures[*]. With hindsight we
     35could say this naming was not ideal as now we want to support
     36multiple key types. I think it may be better to name the new command
     37as type-agnostic like  'pkey-sig' so that we can deprecate rsa-sig and
     38eventualy remove it. As only management clients are affected this
     39should be easier than deprecating a config option. In the mean time
     40exclusively use
     41the new command for ECDSA signatures.
     42
     43Including the key/signature type in the command name is not necessary as the
     44UI knows which key to use and that fixes the signature type.
     45
     46If the meeting is already loaded with topics, I can ask this on the devel list.

     48Thanks,
