I see the discussion of the process, I also see concerns. I don't see any
resolution recorded or any vote.

I will also note that the charter of this group specifically says

"As explained in the Process Document (section 3.3), this group will seek
to make decisions when there is consensus. When the Chair puts a question
and observes dissent, after due consideration of different opinions, the
Chair should record a decision (possibly after a formal vote) and any
objections, and move on.

This charter is written in accordance with Section 3.4, Votes of the W3C
Process Document and includes no voting procedures beyond what the Process
Document requires."

Section 3.4 of the W3C process document is quite specific about voting
requirements, and our charter specifically states no procedure beyond what
the W3C process document requires are adopted by the group.

This seems like a significant change to the charter of the group which
should wait for the rechartering discussion.
