WGTW has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Outdated link for operation timeout: DOMException: The operation either timed out or was not allowed. See: https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#sec-assertion-privacy. ==
If [cancelling](https://i.imgur.com/tOjojN6.png) authentication in the WebAuthn API authentication dialog, the console will be warned with an uncaught promise, calling out the timeout for the operation. This error gives a link to check out, but this link hasn't worked for months. It seems like the paragraph has since been refactored or removed:

> Uncaught (in promise) DOMException: The operation either timed out or was not allowed. See: https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#sec-assertion-privacy.

Can said link/reference be fixed to link to a working section/paragraph on the W3C/Webauthn  documentation?

Steps to reproduce said error:
1. Open developer tools console on a locally hosted WebAuthn supported page
2. Launch the authentication WebAuthn API Authenticaton dialog
3. Activate cancel on a WebAuthn API Authenticaton dialog
4. Check browser developer tools console for the error
