Subject: Re: [xacml] Groups - Hierarchical Resource Profile WD 8 (xacml-3[1].0-hierarchical-v1-spec-wd-08-en-01.doc)uploaded

Hi Rich,

I can do the wd 9 by merging in the things from your document into my wd 
8 which contains many changes based on the OASIS checklist. And my wd 8 
is based on the WD 7 posted by Hal and does have the changes made by him.

What I mean is that the pseudo code works only if one has ones hierarchy 
stored as an array in that particular format. Another problem with the 
pseudo code is that it assumes that each node only has one parent, which 
is a limitation compared to what the profile can apply to.

And, in the end, I don't think pseudo code contributes much in this 
case. I think it is clear enough already that the attribute "ancestors" 
will contain ancestors, the attribute "parents" will contain parents, 
and so on.

Best regards,
