7.2.3 Implementation Experience

The requirements for showing implementation experience are not precisely defined by the process. The objective is to show that the specification is sufficiently clear, complete and interesting that (multiple independent) implementations of each feature of the specification can be realized. In assessing that there is adequate implementation experience, the Director will consider (but is not limited to):

*      is each feature implemented and how is this demonstrated; for example, are there public tests for the feature?

*      are there multiple interoperable implementations of each feature

*      are the implementations created by independent implementers?

*      are the implementations publicly deployed?

Planning to meet the requirement for implementation experience should begin early and proceed in parallel with the development of the specification. It is up to the working group to present evidence that sufficient implementation experience exists and that it has met any implementation requirements it has placed on itself during LCCR.


Section 7.4.2 (LCCR) has

must document how the requirement for implementation experience will be met.

Section 7.4.5 (REC) has

must document that the requirement for implementation experience has been met.

Section 7.1, LCCR bullet

Gather implementation experience
