A brief update

Hello everyone,

You might have seen some email earlier today about my status in the working
group. I just wanted to let you know what was going on.

You're probably aware that we've been talking about starting a business
group for merchants interested in web payments. After some discussion, I'm
going to take on the role of W3C staff contact for that group, which we are
hoping to launch very soon (full disclosure: W3C is contracting with my
consulting company, Stormglass Consulting Ltd for a couple of days a month
for my time).

To be able to be the "staff contact" we needed to change some settings on
my W3C account, which triggered me leaving (and then rejoining) the working
group. I will continue to serve as co-chair with Adrian as an invited
expert in that group, and I hope that everyone is comfortable that I can
separate being the pro-bono chair of the WG from the activity in the
business group (which will have its own chairs - watch this space).

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Ian, Adrian or
me directly.
