This Wiki has been put together and structured to facilitate specific areas of work that, by their nature, are difficult to manage in any other way. The focus is particularly on those activities that require collaboration across and between distinct [http://www.idecosystem.org/ Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG)] groups and committees.<br /><br />

The Wiki is not organized by IDESG Committee or working group - the website should still be used for managing group-specific documents, work items, calendars, etc. Cross-references between the two can be made but the nature of the Wiki is precisely that everything is subject to change. See [[Wiki Guidelines]] for more details.
