Hi WebAppSec,

Thanks to the group's good work, the re-charter got support from the
Advisory Committee.

A few comments were raised:

* Milestones removed from the charter
- Those are being maintained on the group's homepage instead.

* Add liaison to the Devices and Sensors WG and the WoT work.
-  Add Device and Sensors to 3.1 list. WoT is at a different part of the
Web.

* Add liaison to Web authentication WG wrt the "credential
management" and "web authentication" specs.
- Add Web Authentication to 3.1 list.

* Usability: How can we get usability assessments? "Ever-more-clever
security specs are pointless if they're too hard for users."
- Without changing the charter, can we get the group's help focusing on
developer usability. One suggestion from the team is to work with
developer meetups such as https://chapters.io/
We might also consider asking for user studies.


The changes are reflected in this pull request:
https://github.com/w3c/webappsec/pull/529

Please let me know if you have any comments/questions.

Thanks!
--Wendy
