Hi Howie, 

actually mine was more a question than a condition. I understand that your
proposed approach is practical and potentially temporary until the SANA
glossary eventually takes over, which might take some time. I see and
appreciate that in the area of security you are promoting terminology
harmonisation with this document. Based on this, I am OK with it.

Mario and Brigitte,

Concerning your conditional approval of the release of the Security
Glossary, indeed this document is only a glossary of terms.  However, the
rationale for creating such a glossary was to eliminate duplication of
security glossaries in each security WG document published.

All terms in the existing SANA Glossary are defined in CCSDS documents; the
definitions in those documents are the source of the SANA Glossary. Many
terms in the SANA glossary, which was created via document search, are dated
and incorrect because there was no human intervention in its creation.

The update to the Security Glossary is an actual update to the existing
Security Glossary.  Even if it were someday decided to retire the Security
Glossary in favor of a SANA-only glossary, the update would still have to
occur first.

The change in document color is happening in conjunction with the update,
but it is not what the CESG is being asked to approve (the CMC already
approved the change in color).

Therefore, I believe that the condition is actually not a condition that
applies to the document update and should be withdrawn.
