Hi All,

Can we please stop sending automatic commit messages to the mailing list! PLEASE. 

Although we all appreciate tracking changes to specs, the current way we are going about it is just wrong. 

The right thing to do is to move all of the specs to github and have people subscribe to the specs they are interested in. Then, if a spec needs to change, the Editor sends a PR and everyone that is interested in the change can review the change. Or, for small changes, the editor can make a change and the change set can just be viewed online for those tracking changes. 

Forcing everyone to receive messages that they are not going to read is very unhelpful and kills people's ability to participate in this list.
