Great!

I've set up an extract draft to allow for review here:

   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/webrtc.html

I presume you don't want to jump straight to publishing a REC for the 
patent policy, but whenever you would like to do that let me know and I'll 
work with Mike to get something ready.

Absolutely. As far as editing the WHATWG standard goes, I'm happy to take 
input from anywhere, including naturally any W3C lists where discussion 
might take place, but also including many of the places Web developers 
tend to congregate, for example reddit, or HN, or their blogs, etc. What I 
do for the rest of HTML is that I have a Google Alert for some key terms 
and I follow up on any constructive feedback I find; I expect I'll do the 
same for this part of the spec.

I promise to reply to any e-mails sent to the WHATWG list; for logistical 
reasons I obviously con't promise that for every other list as well, but I 
would be happy to do my best on any other specific lists you may have in 
mind as well. (It mainly depends on what kind of traffic the list gets -- 
for example, some of the HTML working group lists have a rather low 
signal:noise ratio so I've had to be much more selective there.)
