                        then the meeting may be cancelled by the Chairs.  Please
                        monitor the OASIS TC calendar and postings prior to each

                       The next scheduled meeting is now August 19th, 2008.

4. Issues list [2]

               - Actions
                        No open action items.

               - Issues                  
                       i015 - Non-standardized Normative References
                                Not discussed.

               NEW ISSUES:
                        PR0001: Revise federation metadata document structure to eliminate
                                        ambiguities and improve interoperability[3]

                                An implementation effort found ambiguities with respect to
                                metadata.  Some sort of structuring mechanism is required.  
                                SAML Metadata already seems to include the structures being
                                looked at.  Discussions with some of the SAML folks seems to
                                support this notion and they seem to be willing to consider
                                supporting the small changes needed to support WSFED's needs
                                here.  This might be a good mechanism for harmony between
                                the two groups rather than WSFED working to create a
                                different version.

                                Because there are current implementations of WSFED spec
                                currently being shipped and others in the queue getting ready
                                for shipment.  Migration needs to be considered as this gets
                                resolved. A new namespace was mentioned as a potential for
                                handling this.

                                Teams who have begun implementation of the specification need
                                to review the issue and potentials for migration.

                                ACTION: Change state to Active.

                        PR0002: Federation metadata, DNS SRV, and RFC 2782 [4]

                                Three problems noted with WSFED's use of data retrieval
                                mechanisms.  Problem statement suggests that all you
                                really need is HTTP/HTTPS mechanism.                        

                              ACTION: Change state to Active.  

5. Other business


6. Roll Call Additions

               One addition.

7. Adjournment

               Meeting adjourned.
