Subject: Re: [security-services] "Registration" process for third-party SAMLcustomizations

Forgot to bring this up on today's call.  Any comments?  I don't think 
we particularly need to rush to get this settled as long as we do it by 
the time V2.0 is final; it probably needs a quorate discussion, so 
that'll be Nov 9.  (I think Mary McRae also wanted a chance to convince 
me that we should be using the OASIS Registry for this...)
