[OpenID board] Gluu OBJECTS to the approval of the OpenID Connect Federation Spec

I know that a number of people actively contributing to European federations, such as NORDUnet, have joined the working group, at Roland's suggestion, to participate in the discussions. If there are others who you think are not members and should be, please invite them to join. Participation in OpenID working groups is free. OpenID working groups operate in public, so the conversation is hardly "buried".
Being in an OpenID working group means that the specification will be freely available to all to implement, with contributors all making a patent promise. Bringing the patent promises into effect is the primary point of the current vote at https://openid.net/foundation/members/polls/146. I encourage everyone who's interested in OpenID Connect Federation to participate in the IPR vote.

Ok, but I think discussion of this spec should be more comprehensive. It would help if the discussion was more public so we could get a quorum of interested parties. As the conversation is buried in the OpenID Connect WG meetings, it's hard to get the right people involved, and has the result of reducing participation.
