Other Comments:
- Deployment profiles remain the main interest of the majority of the group, and the group is shaping up to be a group of representatives of government deployers or vendors engaged in that process.
- Norway (DIFI) interested in attributes with Digital Certs and identifiers in eProcurement which the group as a whole not really interested in doing, but P3WG is at least trying to accommodate some of this, coming from a policy angle. 
 - Emerging concern around level of active participation vs. passive observers. The 80/20 rule is apparent so far.  Persistent non attendees with voting status have been asked to step down to non voting status as quorum on the calls is now a problem.
