Hello fellow OpenID spec participants,

As I wrote in August [1], it's time to get the specification declared
final. We've had quite a while now for implementations and
specification feedback. Here at JanRain, we've implemented the draft
specification in Python [2] and PHP [3], and I know that the folks at
Sxip have implemented and deployed it in Java [4]. I know that at
least those implementations have beed tested against each other, and
worked successfully. I haven't heard of any new spec issues raised
from implementation.

As such, I am in favor of declaring Draft 12 the final draft and
blessing it as OpenID 2.0.

Do the other specification editors agree that now is the time to
declare OpenID 2.0 finished?
