Okay, here it is.  Any final comments?  I've been told that the very 
moment we get this up on the site, we'll be receiving our first 
submitted item.  Thus, given that the process is so darn lightweight, I 
suggest that if people think it's good enough for now (let's confirm at 
tomorrow's focus call), we can always tweak the website wording later.

By the way, as is probably obvious, I'm happy to be the person assigned 
to trap notifications, vet them with the TC, and put links to them on 
the website.

SAML Profiles, Bindings, and Extensions:

Because of SAML's design for flexibility, it is anticipated that some 
SAML users will want to custom-design their own profiles, bindings, 
authentication context classes, and/or extensions as appropriate for 
their purposes.  The SSTC invites third parties who are building such 
SAML-based specifications to tell us about them so that we can list and 
link to the specifications on this site.  This listing is intended to 
help other SAML users more easily find and use existing custom uses of SAML.

To notify the SSTC of your SAML-based specification, use the [link: 
comment form].  It is expected that such specifications will adhere to 
guidelines set forth in the relevant SAML specification.  For example, 
the SAML Bindings and Profiles specifications give guidelines for 
information that must accompany new bindings and profiles, such as a 
unique URI, author contact information, and so on.

The SSTC reserves the right not to list any SAML-based specification, 
and no endorsement by the SSTC of any such specification is implied. 
The SSTC [link: IPR declaration page] does not apply to such 
specifications.  This listing is a courtesy only.

If you are an OASIS member and wish to contribute a SAML profile or 
other SAML-based specification to the SSTC for consideration in future 
work on SAML, please refer to the [link: OASIS TC process] for the 
proper way to make a contribution.
