Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.
TSIK will be moved to dormant status, after a successful PMC vote to do so.
TSIK has had no message traffic since May, and appears to be dormant.
Interest is waning a bit. We have not been able to hook TSIK onto any of the dependency chains (example Axis->WSS4J) that we have. We may have to seriously consider the worst case scenario of stopping incubation.
While the TSIK project has not gained momentum as quickly as initially hoped, there has been some usable interaction with ws.apache.org on how to modularize TSIK, to both break out components for potential common use, as well as reuse existing ASF code (SOAP messaging stack, for example). The next few months will be crucial for TSIK. There is increasing interest in various types of identity protocols -- federated or not -- and how they are usable within web services (see TSIK road map for further discussion). This could be an area where TSIK could be a driving force.
- MSFT and IBM have confirmed that they don't have patents on WS-Security - Verisign is almost ready on their side to make a code drop and send paperwork (probably in a week or so). - Their code does not have any SAML, so we don't have to chase RSA Security for now.
