Subject: hosting test and research policy repository


I checked with Jamie Clark on whether there were any OASIS issues with 
the idea of the XACML TC hosting a repository of "rather large" policies 
contributed for research and test purposes.

Jamie responded, "Seems to me this ought to be a good thing, and ought 
to be possible."  He was not concerned about resource costs.  As far as 
IP issues, he said any OASIS member can contribute without further 
steps.  Non-members can contribute content if accompanied by a Feedback 
License from http://www.oasis-open.org/who/ipr/feedback_license.pdf. 
"He can just sign & send it in and then we can take his uploads to his 
heart's content. ... Or if it's just text, he can send messages in to 
the form at

So, is this something we want to do?  I would want the repository and 
contribution mechanism designed to minimize my work as TC web person. 
We would need a way to logically separate "top-level" policies from 
"reference-only" policies in a particular package of policies, as 
required in the RBAC model.
