Subject: fyi: Approval of SAML v2.0 as an OASIS Standard

so, SAMLv2 [1] is officially _done_.  Hurray!

 From a specification perspective, it effectively supersedes it's predecessors,
LibertyID-FFv1.x and SAMLv1.x, as most folks here in the SSTC realize. However, 
OASIS's overall document process hasn't yet matured to the point of addressing 
this aspect of a spec's life (eg the end of it) -- so maybe we can help it, I 
mean ourselves, figure out how to do this.

But I digress -- getting SAMLv2 done and officially approved is a worthwhile 
milestone to have achieved, and I thank the many folks here in the SSTC who've 
worked hard to make it happen. Not the least of which is Scott Cantor. Thank 
you Scott! Also making significant hands-on contributions were Rob Philpott and 
Prateek Mishra (our erstwhile co-chairs), Tim Alsop, Conor Cahill, John Hughes, 
John Kemp, Frederick Hirsch, Paul Madsen, Eve Maler, Rebekah Metz, Jahan Moreh, 
and Rick Randall.

thanks again folks.

[we (OASIS) are apparently doing some navel-gazing wrt the mechanics of 
publishing oasis-wide documents, and hence there's still some bits to work out 
in order to get the absolutely-final-and-polished specs put up on the web. 
hopefully this'll get done this or next week]

OASIS members:

      The ballot for approval of SAML v2.0 as OASIS Standard, announced at [1], 
was completed with sufficient affirmative votes to
approve the specifications. However, because there were negative votes, the 
Security Services Technical Committee was required to
decide how to proceed, per the OASIS TC Process (at [2]).  The TC gave 
consideration to the negative votes but has voted to request
the specification be approved. (See [3].)

      We are pleased, therefore, to announce that SAML v2.0 has been approved 
as an OASIS Standard. The submission of the approved
standard can be found at [4].

      Congratulations to the TC, and the community of implementers, developers 
and users who have brought the work successfully to


Mary P McRae
Manager of TC Administration
