Hi all,

Currently, if the user of a password manager would like to change their
password on `example.com`, pretty much all password managers can do is
load `example.com` in a browser tab and hope the user can figure out how
to update their password themselves.

Ricky (CCed) and I have been working on a simple spec in WICG to improve
this situation & to help services discover where on a website users may
change their passwords by defining the `/.well-known/change-password`
well-known resource:

    A Well-Known URL for Changing Passwords
    <https://wicg.github.io/change-password-url/>

We think it's ready to migrate to the standards track somewhere, and
WebAppSec seems like a good fit.

Thoughts? Concerns?
