As many of you know, Google has commissioned the creation of high-quality JWT/OpenID Connect RP libraries in Python, Java, and JavaScript.  Just as the AppAuth libraries were previously contributed to the OpenID Connect working group, Google would like to contribute these to the working group when they are ready.  The Python library has already achieved certification and is ready.

As board secretary, I've been working with them on some of the logistics of this.  The proposed GitHub project names are:

https://github.com/openid/JWTConnect-Python
https://github.com/openid/JWTConnect-Java
https://github.com/openid/JWTConnect-JS

These are intentionally somewhat parallel to these existing project names:

https://github.com/openid/AppAuth-Android
https://github.com/openid/AppAuth-iOS
https://github.com/openid/AppAuth-JS

Core maintainers/committers/reviewers would be identified for each library at the time of its contribution.  Roland Hedberg would be in this set for the Python library.

This note is to inform the working group of this possibility and to solicit feedback from the working group, since these would become a project of the working group.

                                                                --- Mike
