This page gathers information about implementation efforts and interest, along with interoperability testing plans. We have a goal to develop a hosted validator that can exercise implementors' AM, Host, Requester, and User Agent endpoints to increase interoperability, roughly in the March timeframe. To this end, we have secured a commitment from the Kantara Initiative to encourage validator development by offering a bounty (details to be announced).

Maciej Machulak is the UMA group's implementation coordinator. Several efforts are gearing up in earnest now.

Interest and effort mentioned so far (no obligation implied!):

Who

Protocol: AM

Protocol: Host

Protocol: Requester

UX: "relationship manager"
