Title: RE: [xri] FW: Announce: OpenID Authentication Draft 12 (finally)

As an interesting bit of info on OpenID adoption: An OpenID server has been stood up which allows you to register by providing your SecondLife avatar name, avatar uuid, and you can then use your SL name anywhere OpenID is enabled. There is talk in the OpenGrid project of using this in the SL software itself to enable cross-grid inventories and such.

Subject: Announce: OpenID Authentication Draft 12 (finally)

Hello OpenID community,

I'm happy to announce draft 12 of the OpenID Authentication 2.0
specification [1]. It's been a long time [2] since the previous draft,
and it's past time that we get the work that has been done out, so
that users and developers can benefit from OpenID 2.0.

In the next month, we'd like to see implementers update their
libraries or applications to be draft 12 compliant and perform
interoperability testing. Once this period is over (October 1st), we
should call the specification final, pending final IPR clearance from
contributors. If we have IPR clearance by that point, we can call the
spec final on October 1st.

In the past, we've had timelines proposed and slipped. I don't think
there's any reason for that to happen in this case, and I hope that
the community will hold the editors accountable.

Let's get this done!
