Subject: Minutes: XRI TC Telecon 8-9AM PT Thursday 2008-09-11
Following are the minutes for the unofficial telecon of the XRI TC at: Date: Thursday, 11 September 2008 USA Time: 8:00AM - 9:00PM Pacific Time ATTENDING Peter Davis John Bradley Markus Sabadello Nika Jones Drummond Reed Marty Schleiff Les Chasen 1) IDENTITY REFERENCE MODEL Several TC members were at Digital ID World this past week, and mentioned that the concept of a "reference identity architecture" for all identity systems was a hot topic. This meme is the whole subject of Marty's new blog: http://identityhappens.blogspot.com/ John Bradley mentioned that this could help with harmonization efforts. Marty invited everyone to submit ideas/comments. 2) FACE-TO-FACE MEETING LOGISTICS We confirmed that our face-to-face meeting will follow Internet Identity Workshop on November 12/13/14. We have a room for Wed. afternoon the 12th and Thursday the 13th but still need to set one up for Friday the 14th. We also have tentative approval to reimburse some travel expenses to help underwrite production of our white paper. # JOHN to talk to Dee Schur to confirm the details of how that reimbursement process will work. 3) XRDS UPDATE Peter and Drummond reported on their conversations with Eran Hammer-Lahav RE plans for proceeding with XRDS as a standalone specification. We also need to look at incorporation of WS-Addressing EPR (Endpoint References). We should have more news on this by next week. John brought up the idea of revisiting our use of Refs, due to how much additional effort they require in understanding and implementation. It was agreed to revisit this as we commenced the new XRDS work. 4) W3C TAG DISCUSSION We continued last week's discussion/analysis, focusing primarily on a suggestion originating from Stuart Williams about changing the formal definition of an XRI to a relative URI, and then defining bindings of this pure abstract identifier syntax to different base URI schemes, including http:, https:, and xmpp:. It was agreed this approach looked promising because it is consistent with the TAG's advice while maintaining a clean definition of the XRI entity space. # PETER, DRUMMOND, JOHN to check with the TAG about this approach.
