Subject: Re: [xacml] Issue#69: location of XACML 2.0 schema files

Addendum: the issue says the "correct location" is the "xacml/2.0/" 
location, but that depends on how "correct" is determined.  At the time 
we originally approved the XACML 2.0 core specification and schemas for 
OASIS standardization vote, the "xacml/2.0/" directory had not been 
created.  OASIS during the 2.0 standardization period decided to create 
version-specific sub-directories under each TC's main document 
directory, so they stored the document and schemas in the "xacml/2.0/" 
directory after the documents were approved.  I think we did a 
last-minute change to put the xacml/2.0/ directory location on the title 
pages of the documents, but never realized at the time that the schemas 
and examples also needed to be changed. - Anne
