somewhat all of a sudden, the cloud-hosted bikeshed claims:   Unknown
Status 'ED' used 

here's the details..

Error running preprocessor, returned code: 1.
\033[1;31mFATAL ERROR:\033[0m Unknown Status 'ED' used.
\033[7;31m ✘ \033[0m Did not generate, due to fatal errors

The metadata section in this index.bs begins with..

  <pre class='metadata'>
   Title: Web Authentication: An API for accessing Scoped Credentials
  Status: ED
  TR: http://www.w3.org/TR/webauthn/

  ED: http://w3c.github.io/webauthn/

  Shortname: webauthn
  ...
  </pre>



This is a bug, yes?  'ED' is used as a value for Status in the example on..

https://github.com/tabatkins/bikeshed/blob/master/docs/metadata.md


That page also says that documenting the allowed values for Status is a
"TODO" -- what's the status of that?

I also note that playing around with the leading whitespace of the lines
within the <pre class='metadata'> section yields different error msgs,
sigh.

was the bikeshed impl behind https://api.csswg.org/bikeshed/ recently
updated?  I wasn't having this issue with this index.bs file back in June.

thanks,
