Lazarus-like

I received the following email this morning
Subject: [security-services-chair] Groups - Mr. Jeff Bohren removed from OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC

Date: 31 May 2007 19:14:53 -0000
From: workgroup_mailer@lists.oasis-open.org
To: security-services-chair@lists.oasis-open.org

Mr. Jeff Bohren from BMC Software has been removed from OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC (user left the group)

Given that I know of an upcoming piece of work that Jeff is spearheading for the SSTC, this came as a surprise. When I asked him for clarification, his response:

The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. To switch from observer to member you have to remove yourself first and then to reapply as a member, which I have done. Since I am now the primary rep for BMC, I also approved my own application. SOD, what SOD?

Would this be an example of reprovisioning?

Separately, I applaud Jeff's usage of 'In Flanders Fields' as a tribute for the recent US Memorial Day. The poem (with associated poppies), is a key piece of our own Remembrance Day here in Canada. I venture that more Canadians can recite it in its entirety than our anthem.

Autoprovisioning, I would say :-)
