Dear Web Payments Working Group Participants,

The Web Payments Working Group's charter [1] expires 31 December 2017.
We began discussions about our revised charter in August [2] and since then
have periodically reviewed updated drafts, including most recently during 
our TPAC face-to-face [3]. The charter has been revised based on TPAC
discussion and subsequent review by the W3C staff.

This is a call for consensus to request that the W3C Director submit
a revised Web Payments Working Group charter for formal review by 
the W3C Membership.
  https://w3c.github.io/webpayments/proposals/charter-2017

PLEASE RESPOND to the proposal by 14 December 2017 (10am ET).

NOTES:

 * One goal of this review is for your organization to begin to look at the scope
   section of the charter. We would like to reduce the likelihood organizations
   raising scope-related concerns during the formal Advisory Committee
   review, expected to begin in January 2018.

 * The Working Group's charter will be extended until 1 March 2018 as we
   go through the rechartering process.

For the co-Chairs,
Ian Jacobs

PROPOSAL

That the Web Payments Working Group request that the W3C Director
submit this revised Web Payments Working Group charter for formal 
review by the W3C Membership:
   https://w3c.github.io/webpayments/proposals/charter-2017

Here is the specific source document:
   https://github.com/w3c/webpayments/blob/9494ad51bd26ba3646ee913ddff41200f2dbe015/proposals/charter-2017.html

Please indicate one of the following in your response:

1. Support the proposal.

2. Request some changes, but support the proposal even
    if suggested changes are not taken into account.

3. Request some changes, and do not support the proposal
    unless the changes are taken into account.

4. Do not support the proposal (please provide rationale).

5. Support the consensus of the Web Payments Working Group.

6. Abstain.

We invite you to include rationale in your response.

If there is strong consensus by 14 December 2017 (10am ET) for the proposal, it will carry.

==========================
Formal Objections

* If you wish your LACK of support to publish to be conveyed to the
Director and reviewed, please include the phrase "FORMAL OBJECTION"
in your response and be sure to include substantive arguments or
rationale. The W3C Director takes Formal Objections seriously, and
therefore they typically require significant time and effort to
address.

* Silence will be taken to mean there is no Formal Objection.

* If there are Formal Objections, the Chairs plan to contact the
individual(s) who made them to see whether there are changes that
would address the concern and increase consensus to publish.
