Subject: RE: [saml-dev] Con Call Tuesday 4/23

I agree with Prateek on this one.  I feel that proving interop just for Web
SSO is a fairly large task and we have relatively little time to complete
it.  I don't know about everyone else, but working on the interop is only
one piece of my and my team's job.

Hopefully, folks aren't underestimating the work required to make this
happen.  If we can do web SSO and use some attribute statements as well, I
think we will have been very successful, indeed.  Once we get this working,
we can evaluate whether there's time for anything more.  Perhaps some of the
attendees have an interest in demonstrating some additional, but optional,
interoperability features.  I don't object to that, but I wouldn't want it
to take time away from getting the key stuff going.
