WPWG Priorities

Hi Chairs and WG Members -

*Note: I'm speaking here as a member of the WG, not as an editor.*

Given that we've now reached FPWD, I want to propose we start focusing on
resolving issues that will allow us to start shipping experimental
implementations of the API on the web platform. This means focusing on
issues that affect the fundamental shape or interaction model of the API.
By focusing on a key set of issues, we can hopefully prevent the case where
different, incompatible versions of the API are being shipped.

To that end, I've identified the following short list of issues as ones I
think we should focus on getting consensus around, hopefully starting on
tomorrow's call:

*1.) Payment Method Identifiers (#11
<https://github.com/w3c/browser-payment-api/issues/11>) - *This is at the
top of the list for me. We need to make sure merchants can declare payment
methods in a way that is consistent across implementations. We have a few
proposals on the table, but I think it's complex enough that it will merit
time on a call (or the full call) to move forward.

*2.) Finalizing how "total" is passed in (#18

*3.) Complete() and its accepted values (#17
<https://github.com/w3c/browser-payment-api/issues/17>, #129

*4.) Support for collection of email and phone (#1
<https://github.com/w3c/browser-payment-api/issues/1>, PR #65
<https://github.com/w3c/browser-payment-api/pull/65>) - *It seems like
we're circling around consensus here, so discussion on a call might help to
quickly resolve. At the very least, I'd like to resolve how we can get
"email" in.

This is not to say that other issues the group has highlighted are not
important (e.g. registration), and I very much hope that discussion of
those continues on Github in parallel. But given that we only have one
opportunity per week to discuss live, I'd like to start making concrete
progress on the above issues.
