Subject: RE: [security-services] SAML is singular

Title: RE: [security-services] SAML is singular
SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is the name of the framework.
Security Services Technical Committee (SSTC) is where, at OASIS, SAML is defined.
Two different things in my view.

I am surprised by this. This happened while I was on vacation and I guess I never read the minutes that closely when I got back. I always assumed we had agreed to name the specification SAML and retain Security Services as the name of the TC, just as it says on the web site.
