API return developer_validation field with unproven value

Hi, The following api returns a field named “developer_validation”: curl -H ‘X-Ubuntu-Series: 18’ ‘https://api.snapcraft.io/api/v1/snaps/details/<my_snap_name>

When running it against my snap it returns the value “unproven”.

What this field means? I believe it related to the small green ‘v’ icon besides the Publisher name

If so, how can I be a verified developer? - I’m publishing the snap under a Public Company user and not this private user.

How to become 'Verified' publisher? has some more info, i’m not sure if someone is working on documenting the process (or if it even changed), perhaps @Igor knows more ?

I don’t have any more information on this at the moment, but I will bring this up in conversation with the wider snap ecosystem team. Hopefully, we will be able to provide answers to questions of this nature, provide a process, or both.
