Hi All,

I think it is essential to keep the Identity feature.

I reported the Identity Feature Request in chrome bug track in issue
493640 <https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=493640>,
and the status of this issue has changed recently(Mar 6) from Available
to Assigned.
This way I hope this is an indication that chrome considered finally to
implement this feature.
I hope we will have a second implementation in chrome.

Furthermore our NREN community enjoying for a long while the benefits of
the federated (World Wide) AAI service.
IMHO to integrate already established AAI Identity federations, like
eduGAIN <https://technical.edugain.org/status> / REFEDS
<https://refeds.org/federations/federations-map> or our new OIDC federation
with WebRTC Identity will definitely add value to our community.
