It's been two months since we last published HTML5, so I'd like to propose 
that we publish another WD.

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html

I'd also like to propse that we publish the microdata vocabulary specs, 
which were split out of HTML5 since the last time it was published, as 
FPWDs of their own:

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/mdvcard/
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/mdvevent/
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/mdwork/

Note that the WHATWG announced earlier today, after reaching zero 
outstanding issues, that HTML5 was now at Last Call at the WHATWG. 
According to the WHATWG's timetable, the next phase (Call for 
Implementations / Candidate Recommendation) is expected in 2012:

FWIW, the WHATWG has also recently started publishing a "complete.html" 
version of the spec, which includes all the specs that had previously been 
split out of HTML5, including the Web Socket protocol, the four drafts 
above, and all the drafts currently being published by the Web Apps WG:

Cheers,
