We still need to go through and outline the role that each organization
plays, but here's a very quick rundown:

Web Payments CG - Incubates and experiments with technologies and ideas
related to Web Payments. Feeds that work into the more formal
standardization groups.

Credentials CG - Incubates and experiments with technologies and ideas
related to Identity and Credentials on the Web. Feeds that work into the
more formal standardization groups.

Web Payments IG - Determines what gaps exist between use cases and
desired outcomes. Suggests new technical working groups to create for
Web Payments / Identity work.

Future Payment and Identity Technology Working Groups - Narrowly scoped
technical working groups take input use cases, requirements, and
technologies to create Web standards.

Open Payments Foundation - Funds researchers, writers, and programmers
to create open source implementations for all payment and identity
specifications.

IETF - Standardizes necessary protocols to support Web Payments and
Identity work.

Internet Governance Forum - Examines and makes recommendations related
to policy, law, and operational frameworks for payments and identity work.

US Fed Workshops - Disseminates information related to work that is
going on at W3C, IETF, IGF, and OPF. Gathers input related to banking
and financial industry needs wrt. initiatives above.
