Hi Jeff,

It would be great for the project if we could get OGC compliancy for all the OGC services implemented by MapServer for version 8.x including the new OGC Features API. Were you involved in the initial compliancy tests? Is adding CITE tests to CI something that we could investigate?
A discussion for the next PSC meeting around this would be good.
