W3C CCG and VC WG (bcc'd),

We had announced a new series of continuous integration test suites for a
variety of CCG work items a few weeks ago:

We are happy to announce today that we have our first demonstration of
cross-vendor interoperability between Danube Tech and Digital Bazaar for
verification regarding the Data Integrity and Ed25519Signature2020 work items:

https://w3c-ccg.github.io/di-ed25519-test-suite/#Data%20Integrity%20(verifier)

https://w3c-ccg.github.io/di-ed25519-test-suite/#Ed25519Signature2020%20(verifier)

This is significant because of the upcoming VC2WG -- one of the requirements
for that WG to produce a standard around these technologies is a test suite
with at least two independently developed, interoperable implementations. That
work is typically not done until around 12 months into the WG. Given that
we've produced the test suite and already have some level of interoperability,
one could (debatably) claim that we're 12 months ahead of schedule. :)

It is true that the test suite will change once the VC2WG forms and we start
hammering out the details in the specification. That we have an operational
test suite going into the VC2WG is going to greatly aid in that task.
