Issue and Action Tracking
Active Task Forces within the IG
Monitored Community Groups
Proposed IG Process
The Web Payments IG should act as a steering committee for the Web Payments Activity. In addition to some administrative tasks, the IG should identify targets for standardization, and work to produce Working Group charters for groups that will create the actual standards. To help fulfill this part of the IG mission, we have a proposed process (under discussion).
Mailing List Policies
- Public list for group technical discussion. Per the Web Payments IG Charter, this group primarily conducts its technical work on the public mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org (archive).
- Public list for external feedback on IG deliverables. The list email@example.com (archive), is to collect public feedback on the Web Payments IG work and documents. To join the list, see W3C mailing list and archive usage guidelines and send an email with a subject of "subscribe" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Member-only list for sensitive or admin information. The list email@example.com (archive) is for administrative purposes (f2f meeting planning, telephone conference agenda, etc.) and may be used for sharing sensitive information if needed. This list is readable and writable by anyone with access to the W3C Member site.
Group Blog / News

Internet of Value
- Today's payment networks are disconnected like the documentation systems that the Web sought to connect. This task force explores how the Web can connect new and existing value networks and enable cross-network clearing and settlement that is secure, low-cost, and fast.
The central question will be how standardization could make web payment mechanisms more interoperable, accessible and competitive.
Let's design an open payment scheme for the Web.
