Hi W3C CCG, VC WG (bcc'd), and DID WG (bcc'd),

The W3C has proposed a new charter for a critical technology for those using
W3C Verifiable Credentials and Decentralized Identifiers: the RDF Dataset
Canonicalization and Hash Working Group (RCH WG).

The goal of this group is to standardize the way many of us digitally sign
Verifiable Credentials. This working group has been about decade in the making
(some would say two decades) and is important for achieving things like BBS+
selective disclosure as well as standardizing the way we format Verifiable
Credentials before they are digitally signed.

The announcement is here:


The proposed charter is here:


If you are a W3C Member, please vote on the charter here:


If you are not a W3C Member, but you know one that is affected by this work,
please remind them to vote on the charter above.
