<p class=MsoNormal>Hi Josh, Johnny, and David,<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>The OpenID Foundation process for creating specifications
calls for a Specifications Council to review proposed working groups.&nbsp; At
least one working group is about to be proposed and so we need to create the
specifications council. &nbsp;The process document (at <a
href="http://openid.net/ipr/">http://openid.net/ipr/</a>) states about creation
of the specifications council:<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=ClauseLevel1 style='margin-left:.5in;mso-list:none'><b>1.8
&#8220;Specifications Council</b>&#8221; means a group comprised of:
(a)&nbsp;two representatives selected by the Board; and (b)&nbsp;five
representatives selected by the Eligible Editors.&nbsp; The Board may select
from among the current Board members (or other appropriate persons, as
determined by the Board), and the Eligible Editors may select from among
themselves (or other appropriate persons, as the Eligible Editors determine).<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=ClauseLevel1 style='margin-left:.5in;mso-list:none'><b>2
Specifications Council.</b>&nbsp; The initial Specifications Council, as of the
date these Processes are adopted, will be comprised of two persons selected by
the Board and five persons selected by the then-current OpenID Authentication
2.0 Specification Editors.&nbsp; The members of the Specifications Council will
serve for two year terms (although one of the initial members selected by the
Board and two of the initial members selected by the Editors of the OpenID
Authentication 2.0 Specification will serve for only a one year term &#8211; as
selected by consensus of the Specifications Council &#8211; so that
Specifications Council membership terms may be staggered).&nbsp; There are no
&#8220;term limits&#8221; for Specifications Council membership, and the Board
or Eligible Editors, as applicable, may re-select the same persons to serve for
more than one term (consecutive or otherwise).<b><o:p></o:p></b></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>Today the board chose Dick Hardt and myself as the
board&#8217;s two representatives.&nbsp; As the &#8220;then-current OpenID
Authentication 2.0 Specification Editors&#8221; I&#8217;m writing to ask you to
select five additional persons who you believe would be appropriate experts to
review and provide feedback on proposed OpenID working groups.&nbsp; Three of
those persons may be yourselves if you so choose.<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>Can you please discuss this matter among yourselves and then
report back to the board soon on your choices for the specifications council
members?<o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal>This is occurring now because I am about to propose the
creation of a working group to complete the PAPE specification.&nbsp; Once the
proposal is submitted, the specifications <a name="_Ref175333071">council&#8217;s
job is:</a><o:p></o:p></p>

<p class=MsoNormal style='margin-left:.5in'><b>4.2 Review.</b>&nbsp; The
Specifications Council will review each proposal within 15 days after receipt
and promptly provide notice to <a href="mailto:specs@openid.net">specs@openid.net</a>
of its recommendation to either accept or reject it, together with a brief
statement of the rationale for its recommendation (including any findings or
opinions by the Specifications Council regarding the criteria for rejection in
the following clauses (a)-(d).&nbsp; The decision to accept or reject the
proposal will then promptly be submitted to a vote of the OIDF membership, in
accordance with the voting procedures in 3.&nbsp; If a proposal is rejected,
it may be modified and resubmitted.&nbsp; The reasons for rejection will be
