Launchpad Bug:


Discussion on a GBS PR (https://github.com/tahoe-lafs/tahoe-lafs/pull/1011#discussion_r604552361) suggests that the RFC 7469 reference is more confusing than useful. Indeed, RFC 7469 is large and covers many validation tasks that GBS has no interest in.

The actual SPKI validation rules we care about are not so complex that we cannot just document them ourselves.
