           Summary: Drafts other than the most recent should be
                    unindexable
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: ayg@aryeh.name
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

When I search for "html5" on Google in incognito mode (so it hopefully doesn't
rely too much on my search history), http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/ is the fifth
hit, right after http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html.  This is an old
Working Draft which has been superseded by subsequent Editor's Drafts, and
which bears a prominent notice saying not to use it.  To reduce confusion,
everything other than the latest Editor's Draft should have <meta name=robots
content=noindex> added to its <head>.  The old snapshots will still be
available at the usual URLs for those who want them, with prominent links at
the top of the Editor's Draft, but they should not be turning up in search
results.
