  = Stonehenge =
+ Stonehenge has been incubating since December 2008. Stonehenge is a set of example applications
for Service Oriented Architecture that spans languages and platforms and demonstrates best
practices and interoperability by using currently defined W3C OASIS standard protocols.
+ Since the last report in February 2010, the Stonehenge project has intensified its efforts
around interop testing between the M2 implementation of the claims-based security model extension
to the Stock Trader implementations. Testing between .NET, Axis2/Java and Metro/Glassfish
implementations have uncovered various bugs and were subsequently corrected in the web services
library and the application code. An example of which is an OpenSSO problem in the Metro/Glassfish
implementation that was corrected in the original code base.
+ '''M2'''
+ M2 constituted of expanding the Stocktrader application to use claims-based authentication
using an active and a passive STS for each implementation. We also upgraded the usage of the
WS-* specs from the submitted versions to the ratified one. Extensive documentation work was
done in parallel to describe the new feature set and simplify the installation and configuration
+ In our last report we were preparing to vote for M2, unfortunately the testing efforts are
still underway and continue to find issues that we hope to resolve in the near future.  We
are currently investigating which if any products or implementations are holding us up from
releasing and potentially addressing them in an effort to release a stable version to our
+ '''M3'''
+ A proposal has been sumbitted for creating "micro samples" for many common WS-* scenarios,
with the goal being around creating implementations with low barriers to entry. The proposal
can be found at
+ '''Graduation Map'''
+  * Grow community around new claims based stocktrader implementations just added
+  * More thorough documentation that empowers developers to replicate interoperability scenarios
+  * Demonstrate full interoperability between existing components, and release

  = Thrift =
  Thrift has been discussing what is required for it to move forwards - most notably in relation
to releases. While many developers work off their own branches, and therefore do not require
or need formal releases, they do accept the need for releases. As a way to encourage releasing,
a proposal was made to have a release manager. As a result of this suggestion, Bryan Duxbury
was voted in as the Thrift release manager, and is intending to take on regular releases.
