Dear IIIFers,

As the W3C Open Annotation work is a fundamental part of our technical
stack, I wanted to invite assistance with the construction of a testing
framework that's currently starting up in the W3C.  If there were two
communities working together to create and manage the testing and
validation of annotation systems, it would go a lot faster and be a lot
more useful to everyone.

The currently proposed approach is to build on the web platform tests, such

And then to use many distinct JSON Schema based declarations to test for
conformance to the syntax.  Gregg Kellogg (hi Gregg!) proposed as a sketch:

If IIIF can use the W3C platform for all of the annotation side, and then
develop our own higher level tests for the other JSON-LD components in the
various APIs, it would ensure interoperability at a much broader scale.

If you have any interest, or have time to contribute, please do chime in:
  * here :)
  * on public-annotation@w3.org

Many thanks!
