Subject: [wss] Fw: Policy and Trust Implementer's Workshop Invitation -- PleaseForward as Appropriate

The letter below was sent to Chris and I as co-chairs as the sender does not have write access to our TC mailing list. We were asked to forward this invite to the entire TC.   We encourage the TC members to read the attached and consider attending as this seems like a natural extension of some of our recent discussions in the TC.

Kelvin & Chris

Policy and Trust Implementer's Workshop Invitation -- Please Forward as Appropriate

Following the WS-I Basic Profile WG meeting February 4 - 6 in Redmond, WA, authors of the recently-published WS-Policy, WS-Trust and WS-SecureConversations specifications will host a one-day meeting on February 7, 8am to 5pm, to discuss these and related specifications (WS-PolicyAssertions, WS-Policy Attachment and WS-SecurityPolicy) and general thoughts about the problem spaces addressed.  
This is an ad-hoc, open forum for 1) SPECIFICATION AUTHORS to share background information on the design of the specifications and to receive feedback and 2) SOFTWARE VENDORS to discuss their ideas about the practicality of implementing these and related Web Services specifications.
We'd like this to be an open meeting and collect a broad range of ideas. If you are interested in participating in the discussions, please reply to this mail and we will make sure that there is space for you.
The agenda is currently flexible. We will include presentations on the named specifications and welcome discussions of others. We anticipate a good discussion on these and welcome suggestions for other items to be included in the agenda. This should give us a good opportunity to discuss the appropriate factoring of the needed work in this area and the appropriate scope for key technical workgroups and specifications.
The authors of the WS-Policy, WS-Trust and WS-SecureConversations, WS-PolicyAssertions, WS-Policy Attachment and WS-SecurityPolicy Specifications intend to submit revised versions of these specifications to a standards body with a commitment to grant a royalty-free license to their necessary patents.  We need assurance that your feedback and discussions are consistent with that goal.  (You will need to sign the following agreement as part of registration at the meeting):  
The specifications listed above (“Specifications”) are expected to be discussed as part of this workshop.  You are not required to provide any comments or input (“Comments”) on these Specifications, but any Comments you do provide may be incorporated into these Specifications.  By signing below, you (on behalf of yourself if you are an individual and your company if you are providing Comments on behalf of the company) grant to the authors of the Specifications (“Authors”) a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free copyright license to copy, publish, license, modify, sublicense or otherwise distribute and exploit Comments you provide. Likewise, if incorporation of your Comments into any of these Specifications would cause an implementation of any of such Specifications (as modified) to infringe a patent or patent application that you control, you commit to grant a royalty-free license to it.  You warrant that (a) to the best of your knowledge you have rights to provide these Comments, and if you are providing Comments on behalf of a company, you have the rights to provide Comments on behalf of your company; (b) the Comments are not confidential to you or to another party; and (c) to the best of your knowledge use of the Comments would not cause an implementation of any of the Specifications (as modified) to infringe any third-party  patent or patent application known to you.  You also acknowledge that the Authors are not required to incorporate your Comments into any version of any of the Specifications.
