In case you missed it, the QUIC interop runner (https://interop.seemann.io/)
supports
automated interop of lots of clients and servers. If you're familiar with
Docker, it isn't
too much work to set up an image for your implementation that can be used
to test
locally or get added to the interop runner itself. Instructions are here
[1]. You can tailor
test cases towards the bits you actively support and develop.

Cheers
Lucas

P.S. and as always hat-tip to Marten et al who help keep the interop
runner... running
