Hello, lovely WebAppSecians. Remember way back in January when I sent out a
pre-CfC to prime the pump for the credential management API[1]? You've
probably been checking your inbox daily since then, waiting. Waiting.

Well, wait no longer! This is a real call for consensus to publish the
following draft of "Credential Management" as a First Public Working Draft:


The document describes an imperative API enabling a website to request a
user’s credentials from a user agent, and to help the user agent correctly
store user credentials for future use.

This CfC will end in a week (on the 17th of April). Feedback, positive and
negative, to public-webappsec@ is welcome, as are bugs (which you are
cordially invited to file at
