Only "Some success"? Anything that didn't work or was overly difficult? I'm not aware of any issues here, the only thing you'll need to to is mapping of weird attribute names to internal IDs, no?

Scottish reserve.  I will change that to considerable success, with the caveat you mention.

"Attribut release is the IDP's job. Since the IDP in this case is not Shibboleth this is not a topic for this list."

Which is why I asked such people to correspond directly with me,  in the hope that as the Shibboleth SP is in-scope for this list there may be such people on here.
Is there anyone?
