Administrivia Minutes from 4 December 2008 Meeting Approved unanimously. Hal proposed that the TC meet every week after the first of the year or extend the existing meetings to 2 hours. There is general agreement that the TC move to weekly meetings through the delivery of v3. The next meeting will be 8 January 2009. Bill discussed the Oasis Jira/Subversion implementation. TC members should have received notification of an account being created. Bill offered to have the issues list moved over on 1/1. Duane reviewed the XSPA Profile submission. The document was edited for some formatting and administrative requirements and submitted. 3. Issues Issue #66: Policy Combining Rich reviewed the state of the Issue. Erik suggested that we limit the normative combining algorithms. Tony voiced concern that introducing a fixed number will limit the implementation flexibility. Erik proposed to add the 4 new "extended" combining algorithms be added to the specification and that the existing algorithms be marked for future deprecation. There is general agreement to adding the combining algorithms. The TC needs more time to discuss making the new algorithms mandatory and if so, whether to mark the existing combining algorithms as marked for future deprecation. Obligations in Rules There was a discussion on Obligations. There is general agreement to allow Obligations at the Rule level and introduce a type of Obligation (Advice?) that may be ignored. Bill raised the concern that Obligations do not currently have a combining mechanism and that it is likely that conflicts will arise at the PEP. There is general agreement that Obligations be mandatory. Hal suggested that the TC needs to review what is mandatory/optional in the specification at a later date. Missing Attributes Erik reviewed the discussion on the list. Hal will post clarified text. meeting adjourned.
