Hi all,

Thanks to Peter, Gerv and Kirk for affirming that the patient still has a pulse.  Onward we go!

What are the next steps?  Do we have the “Web Server” WG charter to review?

Best regards,

At the recent F2F meeting, I raised Virginia's point - that interest in the governance change proposals and participation in the Governance Change Working Group had waned over time - and asked the attendees if there was still interest in proceeding.  I pointed out that the easy alternative was for new non-SSL certificate groups (what we are trying to provide for in this Governance Change Working Group's output) could also be created independently by the new groups, without having to go through the Forum.

It appeared to me that the attendees were in favor of continuing in the current direction set by the Working Group, and even hoped we could finish this up in the near future.  So Virginia - I do think there is interest in proceeding, and the small number of WG participants probably just represents strong confidence in the WG members' ability to complete this project very competently!

I am in agreement with everything Peter says here. I hope you do not feel that my comments, intended to be constructive, were "pushback".
