Hey group --

After a lot of discussion on GitHub, it looks like there's rough consensus
in that forum to change the name of the Feature Policy spec to "Permissions
Policy"

All of the background info should be on the GitHub issue:
https://github.com/w3c/webappsec-feature-policy/issues/359

At a spec level, this will include changing the names of the spec document,
the API, the HTTP header, and the introspection interface and reporting
properties. (All of the details of the actual proposed changes are
contained in the pull request at
https://github.com/w3c/webappsec-feature-policy/pull/379). From a W3C
process level, we'll also have to rename the repo and publish a Note at the
old location pointing to the new one.

Are there any objections from WG members to making this rename and move?

I'm not sure if this needs a formal CfC, or just an informative "Hey, we're
doing this thing" from the spec editor, but I'll err towards the former and
leave this open for 7 days to see if there are any objections (or other
comments) from the group.

Thanks,
Ian
