Subject: Schedule for XACML 3.0?
All, I have been thinking a bit about the progress of XACML 3.0. It has been quite slow this year. I am guilty of that myself since I haven't always had the time to work as much on XACML as I would like to. However, I think it would be beneficial for our work if we could adopt a practice of assigning projected completion dates on work items in the issues list. This way we have a schedule which provides some incentives to do work. Otherwise it is easy that XACML work gets pushed back every time since it doesn't feel like it matters since there is no due date. Also, if the items are not completed on projected time, we will notice. Now things get silently pushed back and delays creep up on us without us really noticing. A schedule is also a tool to plan our work and see what are realistic goals to make. Of course, we have to be flexible with the schedule, but I prefer a schedule which slips to having no schedule at all. What do you think? If you think this is a good idea, I suggest that we go through the issues list and decide what we want to include in 3.0 and decide when we want 3.0 to be ready and then assign dates on individual items, so the whole adds up to a realistic finish date.
