1.      Review of Certification Legal Documents
Mike reported that Microsoft standards lawyers have started reviewing the draft legal documents.  They found them currently to be overly heavyweight and to impose potentially onerous requirements that would be an impediment to parties considering certification.  They will be producing proposed changes to address these concerns.

2.      Review of Certification Workflow
We walked through a proposed certification workflow outlining proposed responsibilities for the parties involved in certification and registration.  The same workflow was reviewed on the OIX executive committee call earlier today.

Don pointed out that we are trademarking the term "OpenID Connect Conformance Test Suite".

Mike pointed out that it's the OIDF's responsibility to verify that the certification submission is complete - not the OIX's.  He stated that the verification that OIX should do is that a valid representative of the OIDF submitted the package for registration.

Adam asked whether we'll eventually relax the membership requirement.  John Bradley pointed that there will still likely be payment transaction of some kind, which serves as a form of identity verification.  The OIDF could also control that the submitter controls the submitting e-mail address.

Mike asked who is going to produce and keep up to date the certification web pages showing the logos of all parties who have been certified and a list of the conformance profiles they certified to.  Don said that he is working on a contract to do that for the OIDF with a third party.

George asked whether it was true that parties seeking certification didn't have to have a relationship with the OIX.  Mike responded that that was true because we want many parties to certify their OpenID Connect implementations and we can't place a burden on them of joining two organizations to obtain certification.
