Subject: Re: [xacml] RE: [security-services] Submission of SAML & XACML updates to ITU: questions

Thanks, this is extremely helpful.  Staff will ask to visit the SSTC
and XACML TC, at convenient times, to chat about options and next
steps, so we can confirm this and give ITU an official and clear
heads-up.  Regards  Jamie

We are working on a batch of 8 documents which I hope will reach CS status by around the end of January, but there are no immediate prospects of getting 3 attestations of use for any of them, much less the whole set.
