Dear All,
I would like to give you an update on the W3C Web Payments activity.
We are launching tomorrow the review of the charter by the W3C 
membership. therefore, if you are a member and not the official 
representative of your organization at W3C, I recommend you talk to your 
representative so that he reviews with your help the charter.
The review will take four weeks, and if everything works well, we are 
hoping to announce the group october 16. This is obviously subject to 
review comments and objections by W3C membership.

Then in order to speed the process, we are also tentatively planning the 
first meeting of the group during the W3C annual technical plenary.
If the group is approved and announced on October 16, then we are 
planning to host the first meeting 27/28 October in Santa-Clara, 
California. see http://www.w3.org/2014/11/TPAC/
Note that this meeting will be open to W3C members only and appointed 
Invited Experts. I've a couple of applications for Invited experts that 
I hope to be able to manage by that time.
Here again, note that this is a tentative schedule that may be changed 
if the W3C member review requires further work.

If you have any question, don't hesitate to use these mailing-lists or 
contact me personnally.

> We will now start the formal W3C process.
> In few words, the process consists of a few steps:
> *after W3C management approval, the charter will be send to W3C members
> representatives for review and comment
> *Based on this review, the W3C director will decide (or not) to launch
> the new group
> *When the group is launched, W3C members appoints some of their staff to
> the group and the work begin
> The commitments for participants in the group is light:
> the group works by email, usually meets once a week for one hour
> teleconference, and then is likely to meet face-2-face around 3 times a
> year. While not mandatory, participation in these f2f, particularly in
> the first one, is really important. In most cases, we will be able to

> If the group is launched as scheduled, it is very likely that the first
> face-2-face will take place during the annual W3C Technical Plenary.
> This year it is taking place in Santa-Clara, California, 27 to 31
> October. The Web Payments group is scheduled 27 and 28. See details at
> http://www.w3.org/2014/11/TPAC/
> Note that the group is not listed yet because it is not existing.
> In terms of required actions, here is what you have to do:
> *If your organization is a W3C member (see the list at
> http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List ): if you are the official W3C
> representative, then you just have to wait and receive son a call for
> review. You will have then to send your review and that's it. If you are
> not the official W3C representative of your company, you should get in
> touch with your representative (don't hesitate to ask me his/her
> details) and coordinate the review together.
> *If your organization is not a W3C member, note that the participation
> in the group requires W3C membership. If you are interested to learn
> more on the benefit and process for becoming a member, please get in
> touch with me. In some exceptional cases, we may appoint individuals as
> invited experts (see http://www.w3.org/2004/08/invexp). I'm managing
> these requests on a case-by-case.
> Please let me know if the process and next steps are clear or if you
