The implementation work for identity inside of Hyperledger has gotten to a point where there is a significant amount of cross-project collaboration. In particular we have a lot of Indy+Aries+Ursa discussions about API surfaces, release planning and use cases that has always been going on in the Thursday Indy WG call. Since the nature of that collaboration now spans multiple projects with the three we mentioned, we are moving that call underneath the Identity WG's management and officially opening it up to all Identity Implementation work (we didn't want it to distract from the higher-level whitepaper or use case work already going on in the bi-weekly call we have now). So if you're writing identity code for a Hyperledger project, or anything that intends to be interoperable with a Hyperledger project, please join us for the first Identity Implementers call next Thursday at 9 AM mountain time. We will be discussing whether to have the call every week or every other week, and looking for any other working groups from the projects that would like to report status or discuss progress.)

Background: the BC Gov team has initiated an open source project (via an open source "Code With Us" bounty) to implement a OpenIDConnect Identity Provider that works using Verifiable Credentials. Mattr Global is doing the work with BC Gov. The initial repo for the effort has been created and a first draft of a document that outlines many of the details of how it is going to work is in the repo.
