Baseline Expectations - Dispute Resolution Handling  

  • Albert shared mock-up of Docket in wiki
    • Copied orgs of priority 1-5 info into this wiki. Now restricted viewing
    • Idea of tracking each org in the wiki for richer tracking
  • Comment: looks good for our tracking
  • There was a question about those not on the docket, those to be attended to. The public docket should likely include those pending review. 
  • Albert: the public docket list will need to be manually maintained
  • Perhaps take google tracking sheet and transform it to wiki page
  • Include entity IDs as well as organization
  • Could include 200-300 items
  • Entity IDs are tracked in  the health check reports
  • Suggestion to link to page with public docket
  • No need for very fine  grain details to be available to public view
  • However an IDP might want to scan list to see SPs that are used by my institution that are not meeting baseline
    • An IDP might contact the SP not meeting baseline and offer to help that SP meet BE
    • For an SP using federated logon as  access to my service , might want to be sure the participants are meeting BE
    • Want to be able to scan to be sure BE is being met by my partners.
    • Want a very visible indication of where we are falling short of all of InCommon meeting BE
  • Suggestion for metadata explorer tool (from REFEDs)
  • Currently we are focusing on metadata, but In future state of Baseline Expectations, we may be talking about supported software
  • There will be a clean up task for end of any phase of baseline
  • Include when the list was most recently updated
  • For public listing, use an entity-based listing
  • How much info to provide to community about reason an org is not meeting BE?
  • Prroposal to get a list for the trust and Identity newsletter, with just 4 columns
    • org name 
    • entity name
    • entity ID
    • Entity type (IDP, SP)
