Roll Call & Administration Attendees Daniel Engovatov Hal Lockhart (Co-chair) Michiharu Kudo Anthony Nadalin Argyn Kuketayev Abbie Barbir Kamalendu Biswas Erik Rissanen Bill Parducci (Co-chair, minutes) Anne Anderson David Staggs Quorum was achieved (76% per Kavi) Vote on Minutes No discussion, issues with posted minutes. VOTE: Approve minutes from September 28, 2006 meeting Approved unanimously. II. Postings and Proposal Review Document Conventions Anne reviewed her work with Erik and Oasis to distill a set of practical guidelines for the TC. Delegation Draft 14 Erik reviewed the changes in Draft. Delegation now uses Attribute Categories. This has simplified the specification considerably. The examples need to be updated once the disjunctive matching issue has been resolved in the Attribute Category proposal. Daniel discussed options on how to address matching and solicited feedback from the TC. Erik asked why you cannot have a condition at the Policy[Set] level. The original thinking was that the conditions should be contained at the Rule level. Raising Conditions to the Policy level potentially introduces significant complexity to the matching process. Erik raised the question on the list of Where we should put PolicyIssuer and MultipleCondition. The general consensus is that this should reside in the core specification. The question of whether to remove the use of URNs in the specification (vs. HTTP URI references) was raised on list. URNs were originally chosen to call out the non-dereferenceable nature of the information. The general consensus is that this not be changed. SubjectCategory elements no longer exists and this information is mapped to AttributeCategory. III. Issues #47 - WS-Policy Assertion Formats for XACML Anne reviewed her proposal for WS-Policy Assertions, then answered a few questions. However TC members need more time to study the draft more thoroughly before discussing it in detail. IV. Administrative Oasis RF Terms In the event "In case the TC is unable to finish its work by April, Hal will post a ballot asking if members would be willing to transition to the "RF on Limited Terms" IPR option. Members should check with their company's legal and standards departments to see if they should vote yes to such a transition. meeting adjourned.
