The spec has the beginnings of such information, but it is not yet done. 
I'm looking for people who can volunteer time and coding skills to writing 
a tool to help me with this. If anyone has the time and inclination to do 
this, please contact me on IRC or directly by e-mail.

Some people have suggested working on regular announcements, if anyone 
wants to work on this I recommend going ahead and making them. I'd be 
happy to advise; again, catch me on IRC or e-mail me.

This will happen in due course. Right now I'm still dealing with the ~3700 
e-mails that have been sent to the WHATWG list over the past 3 years. Once 
I've dealt with those, I will start with the problem descriptions in the 
Wiki and deal with those. It seems only fair that I should deal with the 
feedback on a somewhat first-come-first-served basis.
