     Minutes from 3 August 2006 TC Meeting

     Minutes were approved unanimously.

3.  Announcements

     a. New TC Process Changes - N.B. Errata Process

        There is now a streamlined process for getting approval of
        an errata document; can do this no more than twice a year.
        We currently have core spec errata, SAML spec and schemas
        errata, and the core and SAML schemas needing OASIS
        copyrights.  Work needed is to compare the specs to create
        a list of changes (and a red-lined version).

        ACTION ITEM: Hal will work on the necessary diffs.

     b. Registration of XACML with ET.gov - status update

        Hal has sent the updated draft to the OASIS staff, but has
        not heard back.  Issue is whether OASIS staff will do the
        registration or us.

     c. Status of XACML in ITU/T

        Abbie reported that XACML 2.0 was submitted in June.  The
        review process should be done in 4-5 weeks.

4.  New proposal - Pagination support for policy query and assertion 

     Kamalindu Biswas submitted a proposal for dealing with too
     many policies to return in response to and XACMLPolicyQuery.
     The proposal adds two elements: PaginationRequest, and
     PaginationResponse.  Hal suggested this is going beyond
     "retrieving policies to meet a situation", and it might be
     good to specify a "provisioning protocol" that supports
     queries for all policies, number of policies, updated
     policies, etc., possibly based on SPML, but with
     XACML-specific components.  Seth mentioned issues of what
     happens if new policies are added or deleted in the range
     that was already sent, etc.  Could be based on a "snapshot"
     model, but then must deal with timeout, etc.

     Status: take this to the list to get proposals and general

5.  Proposal for Attribute categories (Issue#3)

     Daniel Engovatov submitted draft schemas and other
     information as a specific proposal to deal with the decision
     to support extensible groupings of attributes.  People are
     encouraged to review his proposal and send comments to the

The meeting adjourned at 10:50am EDT.
