Subject: Re: [xacml] Schedule for XACML 3.0?

i think this is a good idea. if there is general consensus i'll set 
aside time on the next meeting's agenda to discuss.

as an aside, i think the wiki supports tables. if so i can setup a 
simple 'score card' for the issues to make it easier to track  the satus 
of each (he says, pining away for an oasis issue tracking tool for this 
very purpose ;)
