Open Cloud Mesh

Improved specs and test suite for Open Cloud Mesh protocol

The Open Cloud Mesh protocol, at its core, defines a wonderfully simple JSON payload to notify another server when a user wants to share a folder or file with a user on that server. It is implemented by some major Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) vendors, and used in production by several serious organisations - including major National Research and Education Networks (NRENs). But its specification and test suite are still lacking in substance and quality. In this project we will improve the specification text, flesh it out to a more strictly defined (RFC-style) text that addresses all aspects and considerations of the protocol. In addition we improve the test suite so that it can be run in Continuous Integration (CI) instead of requiring frequent manual intervention, and clarify any incompatibilities we find between implementations.
