Working on upgrading to Shibboleth v4 from v3.4.6

The metadata we have for webex was causing crashes for me on v4 when I upgraded.
As Scott said, empty elements.

It looked like this:
<md:ContactPerson contactType="technical">
        <md:Company>Cisco WebEx</md:Company>

I made it look like this:
<md:ContactPerson contactType="technical">
        <md:Company>Cisco WebEx</md:Company>

Just patch to 4.0.1 and you'll get a warning about the broken metadata instead of a crash. It has empty elements and is invalid.

As for other issues, any of them that aren't in the release notes should get reported so they'll be captured. Bits are still being added to it weekly.
