Ops Advisory Group
Nick shared an informal proposal for an Ops Advisory Group, which would both advise InCommon Ops and feedback information to the TAC. Please review the document and comment. While this will likely start as an informal group, in the interest of transparency, they will be listed on the website "about" page, and the list can change as people come and go.
Federation Interoperability Working Group Report
Walter Hoehn present the working group's final report and the proposed interoperability profile. As part of the review process, the draft working group report was shared with REFEDS, InCommon Participants, the Shib Developments, the SimpleSAML.php developers, Microsoft, and Ellucian. The working group recommends that the the Kantara Initiative be asked to serve as the home for this document, which would be a successor to the current Kantara eGov specs and as a basis for updating the SAML2int deployment profile. This may also elicit a wider review. TAC concurred with asking Kantara to host this document and the TAC accepted the working group report. Steve Carmody will take this to InCommon Steering for approval.
