Hello Britton,

Thank you for writing. The short answer is that we do not have
any certification services at this time. This is something we
are considering, however, and your suggestion is helpful.

We are also not currently endorsing any other certification services,
although that may be part of the solution in the future.

I wish I could provide you with more guidance today but we are just
starting our own discussions on this topic. 

Thank you,

 _ Ian
