Local Metadata Management Tools

I'll add...

Duke was talking about opening up their tool again I think on a recent IAM Online, but I wasn't there so that's third hand.

Unicon's GUI for TIER looked very promising to me, though it's not initially built to be a distributed tool, it's for IdP Admins to manage one-off integrations themselves, but it does have some initial metadata management and upload capabilities.

A key piece of any strategy going forward is [1], which is a great way to produce pre-cooked metadata from any tool and drop it into the IdP in a simple way that allows for real time refresh but also prevents one bad apple from breaking anything else. It's going to be the 3.4 shipped default and will basically be *the* local solution going forward, just as MDQ is the remote solution for bulk federation of SPs you don't own.
