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 table below lists currently implemented validator warnings, those recommendations are organised as a set of rules which may be easily verified by the eduGAIN metadata validator.

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

mdattr:EntityAttributes placed in md:Extensions element of SPSSODescriptor/IDPSSODescriptor, expected in  md:Extensions element of EntityDescriptor

2-entity1Since http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/Post2.0/sstc-metadata-attr.html does not define appearance of this element in places other then md:Extensions element of EntityDescriptor it is most likely that the condition is a result of a mistake.
