There is a separate mail list for commit messages, which includes CVS and Mercurial. I find it very useful, but agree others may not.

The list is at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dap-commits/

You can unsubscribe by sending an email with ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject to public-dap-commits-request@w3.org

The DAP editors are doing a great job updating the group on the public list, so unsubscribe if you wish. 

regards, Frederick

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.
