Argyn Kuketayev Tim Moses David Staggs Anthony Nadalin Erik Rissanen Hal Lockhart Bill Parducci (minutes) Anne Anderson Ron Williams *******Quorum reached (81% per Kavi) Agenda: I. Minutes from September 29 meeting voted upon: Approved unanimously No objections II. F2F - Review Hal reviewed the Bill and Michiharu's proposals for addressing Bill's outstanding Use Cases. Tim said he is interested in following the work Bill and Michiharu are doing, but is not actively pursuing Generalized Decisions at this time. All "Pending Review" Issues (except #1) were closed during the F2F. Bill noted that in the meeting a number of Issues were identified as being created by and depend upon Frank. The Chairs need to contact Frank to determine if he will be able to continue working on these topics. David presented information on how the U.S. VA is architecting its access control solution and what requirements they are addressing. It was noted that although Erik's team has come up with a model for Indirect Delegates, the subject is too complicated for the XACML model as it pertains to current and near term adoption. The F2F group felt that the v3 document should be composed of a core document and separate Profile documents. "open" Target, etc. will be dealt with in the Core document, while Delegation, etc. will be covered in the ancillary documents. Tim will tentatively continue to act as Editor for the Core document. Hal offered that Delegation will introduce architectural changes to the XACML model. III. Conformance Tests Argyn reviewed the v2 conformance tests. The prior tests run against the new schema are stable. Argyn will begin adding more tests to exercise functionality associated with v2. Argyn asked what is involved for non TC members to be able to contribute Conformance Tests. Argyn also noted that it is impractical to repost the entire conformance test suite with each update. Bill suggested that this task could be addressed with an SCM like subversion or CVS. Hal said that Oasis is looking at solutions for the repository model. meeting adjourned.
