Let me qualify,

If you see a compelling need, let's talk about it.

You can create an issue here...
http://code.google.com/p/opensocial-resources/

and bring the use case to the OpenSocial spec mailing list.

The short answer is that creating relationships is not part of the
OpenSocial specification.  I don't know of any plans to add this capability
to the spec.

If you think about it, does a social application (running within a
container) really need to be able to create a new relationship directly?
Each social container tends to have it's own way of creating and managing
relationships between users.  I think some containers might be reluctant to
give those reigns over to social applications in many circumstances.

  |creating relationships (createPerson SPI feature)
|

>-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|






Hello,

I apologize if I am using the wrong list for this.

I would like to create relationships (e.g. start following another user)
using the People Service. However it seems that neither the PHP nor the
Java implementation supports it for the time being (the PersonService
interface only has support for getPerson & getPeople)

I couldn't find any reference to this in the current issues. Could you
point me to the appropriate issue if any, or tell me whether this is in
roadmap?

Thanks
walter
