The Per-Entity Metadata Working Group, [1] led by Scott Koranda, recommended
that InCommon Ops publish an IdP-only aggregate to be used by SP deployers.
This will help relieve issues some SPs face as the size of the InCommon
metadata aggregate continues to grow. As a result of the WG recommendation,
Ops is now publishing a new production-quality metadata aggregate that
contains the metadata of IdPs only.

The new IdP-only metadata aggregate is now available for general use by SP
deployments. Please note that if you only deploy an IdP, you need not take
any action. Ops recommends that all new SP deployments consume the IdP-only
aggregate, and that existing SP deployments migrate to the IdP-only aggregate
as needed. See the IdP-only Aggregate wiki page [2] for more information and
for a link to the new IdP-only aggregate.
