DRAFTVersion 2020-04-22

This document specifies recommendations for upstream metadata produced by eduGAIN participants. Failure to comply with these recommendations will result in a warning produced by the eduGAIN metadata validator using the eduGAIN SAML profile v2.

...

The rules marked red are actually specification errors and should be upgraded to validator errors (to be discussed within the eduGAIN SG)

The significance column is meant for possible future use, i.e. grouping problems in order to solve the most important first. Proposed significance range is from 1 (least significant) to 5 (most significant). If found useful, this classification should be subject to a future discussion in the eduGAIN SG.
