  • Goals


Goal 1
FO1 was discussed. Rephrase the second column.
FO2: Federation contacts. Security, Delegates and management. 
Pal: Federation support contact. Generic first line support contact/helpdesk. Enforce a non-personal address.
Kevin: RFC2142 contact?
Mario: Security contact challenge, but for the generic contacts
FO3: -
Chris: is this a burning issue?
Nicole: Important in case if we change the rules.
Guy: Goes back to FO1 - inability to remove 1 entity
Alan: Is that what eG is supposed to do?
Chris: No gradient between compliant and Fed being suspended.
Nicole: When do we call the MD feed accurate?
Alex: We do in terms of MD but not in terms of messaging.

Nicole: Also, SPs expects a certain experience. Toolset to check MD validity. Is this ok or does it need clean-up.
Alan: Overarching page that discribes the services.
Alex: eG Reporting is doing something similar.
Marina: The point of Reporting is to pick up information of the tools. They are now preparing MVP1.
Chris: These tools are where the policy become real.
Governance as separate goal for the wg.
Kevin: Is it accurate to say that when a federation joins eduGAIN they are verified to meeting all expectations at the start? I ask because much of the discussion appears to resolve around change management processes.
Guy: eG is not a small organisation anymore. Now we want to be more rigid, governance needs to change.
Pal: This is continuous work

Meshna: What is meant with 'timely' in FO2/FO3.
Nicole: This needs to be worked out.
Chris: Techinical implications. Where to put those?


Pal: eG is based on Federations. But input from non-federations would be much needed. REFEDS WGs or groups like FIM4...
Guy: It need to be possible to involve poeple with the relevant knowledge and skills.
Alan: Take GeGC as an example? SG remain assembly, but a governance group with regional representation.
Guy: Disportionate representation.
Klaas: Useful to think about other models. But we need to be clear on what we want to achieve with a new model. More decision power? High level? Hands-on?
