Dieter: Doesn't care how we interfederate - as long as we get services to people. Summarised previously ....
How do we get to 100% of current IdPs?
Are all federations that are in edugain publishing edugain metadata?
When you leave too much space for the IdPs not to consume the metadata then there is a scalability problem. Releasing attributes. Entity Categories may solve this for CLARIN but we are not there yet.
CLARIN is getting more attributes from federations directly than via edugain. This is not surprising as IdPs do not know enough about edugain entities and treat them differently.
What can we do to fix this?
