Thanks, James.  All of these should be tracked in the working group mailing list archives at http://lists.openid.net/pipermail/openid-specs-ab/.  I know that I also flagged them for action in my mailbox.

As I wrote in my personal blog post<http://self-issued.info/?p=1668> about this “As expected, the reviews generated some great feedback on ways to make the specs clearer. I expect the working group to incorporate that feedback in future revisions.”  I was talking with Torsten during IETF today and thanked him for the great reviews – teasing him that he wouldn’t have done them if we hadn’t held the vote.  We both agreed that candidate Implementer’s Draft reviews are great forcing functions.  I expect us to incorporate the feedback received in the next few weeks and publish updated drafts.

In the meantime, I hope that implementers will also build and deploy these newly minted Implementer’s drafts and also give us feedback based on their implementation and deployment experiences – especially now that the OpenID Foundation IPR protections apply to these specifications.

P.S.  That said, you’re always free to submit issues in the working group issue tracker at https://bitbucket.org/openid/connect/issues?status=new&status=open.

The voting period elicited suggested improvements/fixes/changes to the specs from at least me, Torsten, Mike, Tom, Axel, and Phil.
None of these changes are in the approved Implementer’s Drafts (because I don’t think they can process-wise, which is a pity).
Are the authors expecting to address the suggestions soon (in drafts, not necessarily a new vote)? Or should issues be created in Bitbucket because it could be a long while before the specs are revisited?

The OpenID Foundation membership has approved these specifications as OpenID Implementer’s Drafts. An Implementer’s Draft is a stable version of a specification providing intellectual property protections to implementers of the specification.

  *   Session Management<http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-session-1_0-ID4.html> – Defines how to manage OpenID Connect sessions, including postMessage-based logout functionality
  *   Front-Channel Logout<http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-frontchannel-1_0-ID1.html> – Defines a front-channel logout mechanism that does not use an OP iframe on RP pages
  *   Back-Channel Logout<http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-backchannel-1_0-ID1.html> – Defines a logout mechanism that uses back-channel communication between the OP and RPs being logged out

These specifications are available at:

  *   http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-session-1_0-ID4.html
  *   http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-frontchannel-1_0-ID1.html
  *   http://openid.net/specs/openid-connect-backchannel-1_0-ID1.html

The voting results were:

  *   Approve – 52 votes
  *   Object – 3 votes
  *   Abstain – 5 votes

Total votes: 60 (out of 219 members = 27% > 20% quorum requirement)
