Right. I did not get conclusive answer on this topic as some of the participants believe it should be OCTET STRING and others that it should be BIT STRING. I am still waiting for the authoritative answer and hopefully improvement of the specs or authoritative clarification.

But none of the contributors believed that the encoding should be just raw value without the tag (which is what was in gnutls in previous releases). But since nobody cared before, it is not used very much and we did our best guess what is meant by specs and implement it.

Given that, I don't think this should block a release, but it is indeed good to keep track of that.
