respec now uses 'specref', which provides a single world-wide shared 
bibliography.   The json dump is at: 

It's world-writable, so it's preferred to just add to it if you need 
something not in it.  When you need a local exception (like for 
references between a few documents being published at the same time), 
you can still use a local bibliography.

See https://github.com/tobie/specref for more on that.

I'm not sure which ones you saw, but I didn't get any respec pubrules 
errors doing dcat yesterday.

Also, the save-as-html is nicer now, using the respec button that 
appears in the upper right.

The respec docs are getting a lot better: http://www.w3.org/respec/

I'm not sure that matters much, but I think it's probably easier.

Yeah, I was looking for how to do it yesterday and came across your 
message asking about it.
