safire-discuss -- SAFIRE discussion list


About safire-discuss
English (USA)

A closed mailing list for discussion of federation issues and strategy amongst South African Identity Federation (SAFIRE) participants.

At the moment this list is used to achieve rough consensus about technical issues that affect Participants. For this reason, in general, institutional heads nominate the members of this list and subscribers are expected to be able to accurately represent the views of their organisation.

We will subscribe additional people from Participants beyond those nominated, but will typically make them moderated subscribers. This is a mechanism to encourage participants to discuss issues internally and put forward a consolidated view, and moderation requests are considered with that in mind - particularly when calls for decisions are made.

It is possible (likely) that as the governance structures of SAFIRE evolve, this list's purpose may evolve too.
