I have tried to follow these recommendations.  However, the InCommon 
Federation Manager gave me the following error when I tried to submit my 
New Identity Provider info:


Attribute Service:
1 error prohibited this attr authority from being saved

There were problems with the following fields:

     Attr service can't be blank

Perhaps I need to submit this as a bug to the FM managers?  If the 
AttributeAuthorityDescriptor is optional, how can I omit it?  :)
