I don't know if others felt the same, but I took a step back after 
Manu's report of what happened in the blocking/bifurcation of the Web 
Payments work. My own reasoning was that if this work is not going 
anywhere (if fully blocked by Google and MSFT, in other words) then my 
time would be better spent elsewhere. That's a difficult call to make 
though.

New explanations from this Telecon Minutes, combined with knowing 
about the UN identify conferences (the UNCITRAL April and the UN May) 
about identity, seem considerably more hopeful -- even if W3C doesn't 
use it, it seems like it may make its way to wherever it is most needed.

So one housekeeping question: I didn't see a link to the use-cases in 
the Telecon Minutes. I attempted to use links I had to get to the 
'current' Use-cases draft, and got confused. I want to be sure I'm 
looking at the right one.

The link I had was for February 29, and it's long and I suspect has 
been amended:
http://opencreds.org/specs/source/use-cases/

So I clicked on the 'current draft' link at the top, and my browser 
complained that there was no security certificate (expired):
https://opencreds.org/specs/source/use-cases

So then I did a Google search for the use cases and got to this, April 
12th:
http://w3c.github.io/webpayments-ig/VCTF/use-cases/

Is that correct? This is the one to review?

I also know that Shane spoke of preparing (has prepared?) a separate 
'extended' use-cases document. Is that also to be looked at? (And, to 
be clear, the one above on April 12 isn't that one?)
