Yes, I am interested in working on EAP state machine and I'm
happy if I can contribute to it.
I have one question. I remember that the URL for the 802.1aa D3 draft
was posted on to this mailing list at the end of August with username
and password. Can I legitimately use that credentials to access the
URL though I'm not a member of the IEEE 802.1 WG? Or all the design
team members are assumed to be a member of the IEEE 802.1 WG?
