Subject: ITU-T *pending* approval of SAML and XACML

     Thank you;  Abbie may have some things to add once he's returned and 
cleared his desk.
     TC members should be aware that we probably will NOT make a broad 
official announcement about this, until the ITU-T Last Call vote is 
completed in June, as a courtesy to the continuing ITU process.  We will 
post additional status information here as it becomes available.

     Congratulations also are due from OASIS professional staff to the 
Security Services TC.  We especially are grateful for the technical work, 
cross-walking of rules, and general diplomacy contributed by Abbie Barbir, 
Olivier Dubuisson and Eve Maler, as well as some earlier work in 2004 by 
Hal Lockhart and Karl Best, to make sure the submission was  successful and 
was appropriately transposed.  When Abbie and I met with ITU's Study Group 
17 last fall, we met with a very receptive audience, and received a great 
deal of helpful assistance in working through the various procedural 
steps.  This spirit of cooperation continued in the interim and during the 
two week SG17 meeting in Jeju, Korea just ended.  SAML will be better known 
and more widely available due to the cooperative efforts we've enjoyed.

     Please note that, as a part of the submission to ITU-T, we included a 
copy of all intellectual property disclosures made to OASIS regarding SAML, 
as well as a continuing pointer to the site at which OASIS posts any new 
notices.  During May we will work with ITU-T staff to specify ongoing 
publication plans.  It is our understanding that OASIS members are not 
separately obligated to make IPR disclosures to ITU-T, if they've already 
fulfilled their obligations at OASIS.
     It is our mutual hope that information on future work on SAML also 
will be cross-distributed, and give rise to additional future collaborative 
opportunities.  We expect to maintain live, on-going liaisons to facilitate 
those channels.
     Again, congratulations on this preliminary indication of success.

     Cordially, Jamie Clark
