Subject: Re: Proposal: A Registry Browser GUI tool


See my comments below. Forgive me in advance if I misinterpretted any of
your comments since this is a speed read/response.

Some have made a valid argument that TPA assembly is a service that should
not be part of core Registry Services (RS).
However, in the absence of another spec and since it is IMHO so important,
we have it in RS at the moment. The merge involves
superimposing two Party Profiles (half TPAs if you will) into one concrete

If by *this* you mean TPA assembly, I think it is relatively staright
forward for the simple assembly (merging of 2 Party profiles)
More advanced TPA assembly from more discrete TPA elements in not being
addressed for Tpkyo.

If by *this* you mean the Registry Browser tool, then I think that it could
be done if a participant could do that and only that
with all their focus while working with a Registry provider of their choice
(Sun is one). Krishna, has privately experssed some interest in taking on
this task though he has other things he would like to do as well. Krishna
please share your thoughts.

In any event all of this RS functionality is agressive but I hope we RR will
meet our comittments. I am begining to think that maybe I should send an
updated matrix where I focus on one thing Registry Services provider (back
off from being buyer/seller)

The process I think we are following is to make up matrix with proposed
functionalities from all proposals on one axis and
participants on another. Each participant then fills out cells in the matrix
to indicate they are comitting to providing that functionality in POC demo.
If some functionality does not have any takers then I assume we will not do
it for Tokyo.
