Subject: Re: [saml-dev] Which version to use?

Could you please elaborate what makes Liberty not an option if both 
specifications are the same except for schema namespaces ?

Now speaking of schema namespaces' differences & submission of Liberty work 
to SAML 2.0 group, I am very much confused. Sometime back I had asked a 
question to this group titled
"Why Liberty if SAML .....?" 
I got a good answer as to what Liberty has added to SAML 1.1.

The thing is that I am not able to understand the existence of two parallel 
standards and that too when two standard organizations have 90% common 
companies formulating the specifications.
For me (unless I am very wrong) I see the vendors implementing two parallel 
specs i.e. Liberty-ID-FF-1.2 & SAML 2.0. And for sure will arise an issue of 
interoperabilty between 2 of them in
near future.

Please educate me.

Regards & Thanks
Kapil Sachdeva
