Salmon Protocol RFC draft Now Available

For the past couple of weeks, I've been banging on code and xml to work out a coherent draft spec for the Salmon Protocol. Although Salmon is intended to primarily be a glue protocol, tying together a bunch of disparate existing pieces into an understandable and coherent framework turns out to be a lot of work. Now starts a slog through a bunch of issues (including a backlog on Magic Signatures which need to be addressed) and updating the demo code and libraries to stay in sync with the spec.

Please join the salmon-protocol group if you're interested in working on the Salmon specification and/or writing code that implements it.

In case you're counting, Salmon references 10 other specifications in addition to Magic Signatures.
