Subject Evolution and promotion
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2010 15:21:07 GMT
 Imperius at this stage is primarily an SPL parser and evaluation engine. 
There is minimal (IMHO) support for all the infrastructure that is 
generally required for policy.   A proper framework for policy enforcement 
points, policy decision points, policy repositories and a set of tools to 
make working with policies easier could be a next step, however, this 
would probably be independent of SPL.  This would be less an evolution 
around SPL than a generalization of the toolkit for a larger policy 

As far as next steps for Imperius...there is currently a small user 
community, but my vote would be for promotion based on the fact that 
Imperius is a working implementation of an accepted standard (CIM-SPL at  Given that it implements a standard, it would seem to make 
sense to promote Imperius and host it at Apache.  And of course if we have 
agreement about whether and how to evolve Imperius that would only 
strengthen the case for promotion.
