           Summary: spec guidance on adding new link types to the
                    microformats wiki page does not match the format of
                    that wiki page
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: mike@w3.org
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

Problem: The spec currently says, "Anyone is free to edit the Microformats wiki
existing-rel-values page at any time to add a type. Extension types must be
specified with the following information:", and then has a list with some
categories of information that are expected to be provided for each link type;
for example, "Keyword", "Effect on", "Brief description", "Synonyms". But the
format of the wiki pages does not match those categorizations.

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/links.html#other-link-types
http://microformats.org/wiki/existing-rel-values

Suggestion solution: I suggest we don't bother trying to make the language of
the spec here match the wiki closely, but instead, drop then entire list from
the spec and replace it with a single sentence such as "To add new types to
that wiki page, follow the instructions on that page.", and leave it to the
maintainers of that page to provide guidance on how to add new information to
it. (There are in fact no existing instructions on that page, but hopefully the
maintainers can add some.)
