Hi all,

** Last week merges **

This week, there were no WHATWG patches that needed to be included into our
master branch. We are up to date with WHATWG patches until the 16th
November.

However, I added a new branch from WHATWG patch 7509 [1] which proposes how
to have Web Workers work on canvas data:
https://github.com/w3c/html/tree/feature/whatwg_canvas_workers
This should probably become an extension spec.


** Change to braches **

For those following up closely with the branches that we are administrating
in GitHub, you will be curious to learn that we have introduced a new
branch that will replace the weekly "whatwg_patch_xxx" branches.

We now have a branch "editorial_fixes":
https://github.com/w3c/html/commits/editorial_fixes

I will be merging typos and other small fixes from WHATWG into this branch
on a weekly basis.
All HTML spec editors will use this branch to stage changes for the CR
branch.

I will continue to send out weekly emails to this list to make everyone
aware of what fixes this branch contains before we merge those fixes into
the CR and master branches.

The "master" branch will now be the basis for HTML5.1.
I will thus start merging the branches that are held back for HTML5.1 into
master from next week on.


** List of branches on hold **

These branches are currently held back, some of which will be merged into
master next week. Please speak up if you think some of the ones that are
marked for HTML5.1 should instead become extension specs.
