Dear Web Payments Working Group Participants,

The Web Payments Working Group's charter [1] expires 31 December 2021. We discussed a draft charter at a recent Working Group call.
This is a Call for Consensus to request that the W3C Director submit the following charter for formal review by the W3C Membership:  
    https://www.w3.org/Payments/WG/charter-2021.html

The structure is sufficiently different from the previous charter that a “diff” view is not useful. However, the charter is short! 
Here are highlights of the changes:

* New scope section
* Added Secure Payment Confirmation on the Rec Track
* Section 2.2 sets expectations about other deliverable maintenance

PLEASE RESPOND to the proposal by 9 September 2021 (10am ET).

For more information on the schedule of rechartering, see:

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://www.w3.org/Payments/WG/charter-2021.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 9 September 2021 (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.
