We've actively discussed the details of the schedule since at least the F2F
in Austin back in March. It's unnecessary to hold interop testing prior to
publication of a Committee Draft,
but if you thought it was imperative, you should have brought it up well in
advance (e.g., at the March meeting you yourself hosted).
Eve, please tell me why its unnecessary to hold an interop event as its
unnecessary to have a lot of things (like conformance suite) but the TC does?
I don't see an interop on schedule or in any discussions. Providing
interoperability should be a core aspect of every OASIS standard (as this is
why we do stds). I for one have no idea about the implementation or
interoperability issues (or non issues) until an interop is done, so its hard
to vote to take what we have to CD. I think that with all the changes in SAML
2.0 that an interop is perfectly appropriate.
Are you also saying that I can't bring this issue up now as time has passed ?
