Subject: Re: [xacml] New core and multiple resource profile and hierarchical

Hi Erik,

The hierarchical profile is ready for review as is. There are no more changes planned.
Note: The two added identifiers in section 2.2, "...hierarchical:forest:non-xml-node-id" and 3.2.2, "...hierarchical:forest:non-xml-node-req" are for convenience only and the spec could be rephrased without them, if necessary.
The profile is located at:

The example that Hal requested, which provides further motivation for the changes, as well as detailed explanatory technical structure, is at:

A fresh example of application of the profile using URIs that came up yesterday on the xacml-users list is at:

I have posted new drafts of the core and the multiple resource profile. See the change logs and tracked changes for details.

As far as I can tell, we don't have any open issues on the following specs:

- Core
- Multiple resource
- Administration
- Privacy
- Dsig

The hierarchical profile is being discussed currently and there was discussion about improving the RBAC profile.

The proposed work on the RBAC profile seems in very early stages and the issue (policies about management of roles) is a major topic, so I propose that we don't bring this in 3.0.

So, could we agree on a feature freeze on the above mentioned profiles? If so, all of the expect hierarchical are ready for review before going to committee draft.

I also propose that if we don't get resolutions on the issues in the hierarchical profile soon and it would appear that there are major changes required, then we use the old version of that profile. However, my understanding is that Rich has pretty much completed the work on that. I haven't had the time to review it myself yet, but I will do so now.

So, given the above, can we agree on the following?

- everybody reviews the above mentioned profiles
- We correct any mistakes
- I will fix the metadata, references, namespaces, etc,
- Go CD with the above

One final issue: we need to update the acknowledgements section of the core. What goes in there? My name is not in there, and I would like to include it. :-) I presume that we keep all the old names, right? John Tolbert has requested to be added. Anybody else?
