Subject: Results (!!) of W3C CredWeb elections
With Drew withdrawing his candidacy, after much discussion at today's meeting, there was consensus to proceed with Scott Yates and Aviv Ovadya as co-chairs of the group. With this arrangement, there's no need for voting or the 21-day election period that was previously announced. (Per process, the election is only required when there are more candidates than slots.)

As several people with long W3C experience pointed out, it's usually good to have co-chairs. To my eye, this is an excellent outcome.

Since I did announce there would be an election, however, and some people were not able to attend today's meeting, this email is a call for consensus.  If you have any substantive objection to the group proceeding with our two remaining chair candidates as co-chairs, please speak up now.  I'll give it 4 days, then consider the matter closed and (assuming no substantive objection) hand over the reins to the new chairs.  I plan to keep attending meetings, myself, and to maintain the infrastructure until it can be transitioned.

Thanks everyone for some fascinating discussion. Congratulations and thanks to Scott and Aviv!
