WebAuthn Group,

The VCWG specification is currently in CR. The specification is chartered
to narrowly focus on a data model for expressing verifiable credentials
such as professional licenses, etc. The protocols and processing rules for
exchanging the data model documents are expressly out of scope in this
charter.  We are also explicit that this is not meant to serve as an
authentication framework. The explainer [1] provides an overview of our
goals and objectives.

One of your chairs, Tony Nadalin, has been very active in the review of our
current data model specification [2].  He has opened over 20 issues, many
of which have resulted in updates to our spec text as we are working
through them.  As a result of his engagement, we’d like to remind the
WedAuthn community that they have the opportunity to provide feedback
during CR as well.

Like all W3C working groups, we have a limited CR period, so now is the
time. Please review as quickly as possible, so we have time to consider
community feedback and meet our W3C schedule milestones.
