Hi ! 👋

The credentials(Verifiable credentials) landscape is coming along, it might feel like we have gotten further than we have if you live in this bubble, but there are plenty of tasks left to solve and challenge. A recent roadmap was release by the CCG group of W3C - https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-credentials/2022Mar/0068.html.
This led to a further discussion of what is important to highlight in this roadmap, so that the community is able to understand the important pieces, follow this mail thread: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-credentials/2022Mar/0081.html
EU and EBSI, has released a test suite to try to become conformant with: https://ec.europa.eu/digital-building-blocks/wikis/display/EBSI/Become+conformant
What does this mean? Basically, for standards and interoperability to work across the world, there has to be test suites and profiles to agree upon so that a company can run software towards this test suite, and verify that they are compliant. This is a good step in the right direction, based on that they are choosing the open standards from DIF and W3C!
