While I am resistant to changing the specification without a compelling reason and strong consensus, I am open to coming up with a better term for this. The term IdP is already different from the OpenID 1 terminology (OpenID server), and no official specification has used it. If people agree on a better term, I won't resist. +0 on OpenID Provider (that is, better than IdP, but not better enough for me to defend if anyone objects) Josh _______________________________________________ specs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://openid.net/mailman/listinfo/specs
