Hello, public-webapps!

Here's another summary of work, happening in Web Components.

SHADOW DOM (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=14978)
* First bits of the Shadow DOM test suite have landed:
http://w3c-test.org/webapps/ShadowDOM/tests/submissions/Google/tests.html
* More work in spec, long tail of edge cases and bugs:
  - You can now select elements, distributed into insertion points
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16176)
  - A bug in adjusting event's relatedTarget was discovered and fixed
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16176)
  - As a result of examining Viewlink (an IE feature), more events are
now stopped at the boundary
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15804)
  - Fixed a bug around scoping of styles
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16318)
* Started restructuring CSS-related parts of the spec to accommodate
these new features:
  - Specify a way to select host element
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15220)
  - Consider a notion of shared stylesheet
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15818)
  - Consider a flag for resetting inherited styles at the shadow
boundary (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15820)
* Experimental support of Shadow DOM in WebKit is slowly, but surely
gaining multiple shadow DOM subtree support
(https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77503)

HTML TEMPLATES (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=15476):
* First draft of the specification is ready for review:
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webcomponents/raw-file/spec/templates/index.html.
* Most mechanical parts are written as deltas to the HTML spec, which
offers an interesting question of whether this spec should just be
part of HTML.

CODE SAMPLES (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=14956):
* Web Components Polyfill
(https://github.com/dglazkov/Web-Components-Polyfill) now has unit
tests and a good bit of test coverage. Contributions are appreciated.
Even though it may not
