Hi all,

This week the following WHATWG patches up to and inc commit 7637 [1] have
been cherry-picked into the W3C HTML specifications. This takes us to

If you see any patches there that should also be applied to HTML5.0 CR,

If you see any patches that should be moved to an extension spec and you
have a good technical reason (e.g. a competing spec), please speak up.

Best Regards,
Silvia.
