Hello,

This is advance notice that the W3C Team and Working Group participants 
are currently working on a new charter for the Verifiable Credentials 
Working Group, with a primary mission to extend VC foundations with new 
standardized technologies and improve the use of verifiable credentials 
on the Web based on the experience gained through implementation, 
deployment, and usage of verifiable credentials over the past few years.

The current Verifiable Credentials Working Group charter [1] is hereby 
extended until 30 April 2022. This extension will allow additional time 
to continue the development of a new Working Group charter.

The proposed renewed VC Working Group is chartered to publish a new 
version of the current Recommendation [2] and also standardize the ways 
of expressing proofs of integrity for bounded documents such as 
verifiable credentials.

The draft charter under development is at:
     https://w3c.github.io/vc-wg-charter/

We welcome your feedback. If you wish to make your comments public, 
please use GitHub issues:
    https://github.com/w3c/vc-wg-charter/issues

W3C Members may also discuss on the member-confidential mailing list 
<w3c-ac-forum@w3.org>.

More information about the Verifiable Credentials Working Group can be 
found on its home page [3].

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact 
Ivan Herman, Verifiable Credentials WG Team Contact, <ivan@w3.org>.

This announcement follows section 4.1 and 4.5 of the W3C Process Document:
