Hi folks,
In the last Credentials CG meeting, we discussed the following proposal:

We propose to keep the Digital Verification and Credentials Community
Groups combined since many of our current members are interested in both
topics, and since breaking apart the groups would require more overhead for
people interested in both (more meetings, etc). We will consider Digital
Verification as an informal "task force" within the Credentials Community

We would keep the Digital Verification github organization (
https://github.com/w3c-dvcg) in its current state, meaning it would be
separate from the Credentials CG github org. The repos in the DV org are
very logically cohesive, and this structure will ease issue tracking.

We'll refer to the DV site (https://w3c-dvcg.github.io/) from the
Credentials site (https://w3c-ccg.github.io/), as opposed to subsuming the
content, for similar reasons.

This approach avoids the need for a formal W3C restructuring, and seems to
reflect the wishes of the group members.

Please let us know by Friday August 18, 2017 if you have any objections,
via these mailing lists, or on next Tuesday's Credentials CG call.
