Hi all,
We had one final update today to address David Chadwick's comment about
user control. Per our discussion today, we are going to keep the tomorrow
deadline (8/23) for further comments/concerns.

*Updated draft (change bolded):*

“The mission of the Credentials Community Group is to explore the creation,
storage, presentation, verification, and *user control of *credentials. We
focus on a verifiable credential (a set of claims) created by an issuer
about a subject—a person, group, or thing—and seek solutions inclusive of
approaches such as: self-sovereign identity; presentation of proofs by the
bearer; data minimization; and centralized, federated, and decentralized
registry and identity systems. Our tasks include drafting and incubating
Internet specifications for further standardization and prototyping and
testing reference implementations.”
