CCG Community,

At the 7/27 call (https://w3c-ccg.github.io/meetings/2021-07-27/#topic-3),
concerns were raised about the scope of work done in the CCG in the context
of two work items that proposed work on specific did methods:
- did.pkh: https://github.com/w3c-ccg/community/issues/200
- did.tz: https://github.com/w3c-ccg/community/issues/202

The subsequent discussion raised second and third order questions.

1. The first order question: approve these work items?
2. The second order question: Do we want to include DID methods in scope of
CCG work items?
3. The third order question: what is the in the scope of the CCG?
Especially as the DID WG concludes?

These were discussed with no resolution at the 8/3 meeting (minutes
currently unavailable).

In order to resolve this, I am asking you, as a member of the community to
share your opinions on these questions.

1. What are the *pros* of including did methods as work items in the CCG?
2. What are the *cons* of including did methods as work items in the CCG?
3. Are there nuances in including a certain did method as a work item vs
not including another? How would you decide which did methods could be
official CCG work items?
4. Are there activities you would like included as part of CCG work
activities that currently are not?
5. How should we as a community decide which items to include as community
work items or to leave outside the scope of the CCG?

Remember, please keep this conversation respectful, especially when
responding to discussion threads.
