New Pensions Dashboard profile

The profile was originally developed about a year ago and reviewed by a few UMA experts. The Pensions Dashboard Program leaders are studying the implications of the contribution path that's been taken.

We are thinking it would be valuable to get the contributions into work streams that reflect the WG's intention to work on them soon, and so the editors are interested to put them into report/specification form as appropriate. A sample report looks like this. A sample specification looks like this (but these would be editors' drafts initially, not recommendations). Style doesn't matter, just presence of metadata and correct headers and footers. The Operating Procedures provide guidelines for publication and branding, and there are logos and templates that can be used.

This will help WG members review the material in a familiar form. There may be a few changes forthcoming.

Sal noted that "PDP" is an acronym that has multiple definitions, and could be misunderstood! It might not need to appear anywhere in the flows.

There are a number of questions and issues embedded in the profile text. Ultimately these could be collected in GitHub.

Charter refresh

Our charter hasn't been refreshed in nearly two years. Nominally it's not too out of date and might just need a bit of brushing up. We've had ambitions about interoperability and conformance testing that haven't borne fruit, but the charter wording wasn't too specific. The PD work may require some interoperability testing.

On the other hand, the work we've been doing on the resource definition, policy manager, etc. profiles seems pretty consequential for ensuring that the "negative trust" between RS and client can hold; it could be considered significant new UMA work. This, along with the PD work, seems significant indeed as a body of work. How much should this be reflected in the charter? Alec and Eve should confer a bit on this and come back with a recommendation.
