I had a chance to talk to some of the RedHat folks about Clevis @ the
plumbers conference earlier this month. Interesting & exciting stuff.
Cool, someone also mentioned talking with you about TPM stuff (Peter or
Nathaniel I believe).
The next release of the tools doesn't depend on a new release of

I don't think that's true. At least when I try to build tpm2-tools master

With the tools blocked on the tabrmd we'll be doing a release of the
two in tandem. I'm expecing that the work I've signed up for there to
be on the order of "a few weeks". So while I'm always hesitant to state
release goals publicly I think this can be ready for a release toward

Another problem is what would happen when the kernel resource manager is used,
since AFAIK there's no agreement yet on what the tools should do in that case.
