   5 docs are listed as CS as of March 27 2008
   SimpleSign is to be worked on more, other 4 docs are "sitting there"
   what are we waiting for to advance them further?  just attestation?
Brian:  just waiting on attestation ...

   will make sure that attestations get listed on appropriate pages

3.  Discussion Threads

3.1 Should SAML 2.0 be compatible with XML Signature, Second Edition?
+ 70 & 71

Frederick:  might want to update references
   nothing should be broken, there is an "explain" doc with info
   will send link to list
Tom:  second edition is much improved, much better to reference it
   eg in HoK specs
Frederick:  new edition adds canonicalization 1.1 as required ...

3.2 Suggested HoK URIs and namespace prefixes (and derivative 

Tom:  see latest discussion on list

4. Other business

Nate:  Danish want to support localization in IdP discovery
   can't just use XML "lang" tag since org entries are single-valued
Scott:  thought they were multi-valued, but yes, they're single-
   would require extension to fix, or actually ...
   organization can have repeating child elements for name, displayname etc
     so multiple language names can go in there
Nate:  OK

David Staggs, VHA:  looking for additional authors for doc on
   cross-enterprise security and authorization
   originally written to support health-care cases
