The Government Digital Service (GDS) are using GitHub to host discussions about technical and data standards.  The repository is at https://github.com/alphagov/tech-and-data-standards/issues.

 

Current issues include:

 

  • What would a standard for APIs look like?
  • Timestamps: ISO8601 or RFC3339?
  • SAML
  • Standards for download and streaming
  • What do we have to say about OAuth 2.0?

 

We’ll be learning, contributing, and highlighting issues that are particularly relevant.
