There is a new editor's draft of the CSS3 Grid Layout module available: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-grid-align/

These updates include:

* Section 4: Added the definition of the baseline of an inline grid as the bottom edge of the margin box. This addresses bug 16585 [1].
* Section 6.4: Changed repeat syntax from using square brackets to a repeat() function. Also removed discussion of whitespace, which is not needed under the new syntax. This is addresses bug 16718 [2]. 
* Section 6.5: Updated grammar to remove quotes from keywords, and updated repeating syntax. This follows from bug 16718.
* Section 6.5: Removed "fit-content" as a synonym for "auto" value in grid-rows and grid-columns properties. This addresses bug 16042 [3].
* Section 6.6 (was 7.2): Moved this section into Section 6, which describes Defining the Grid, to improve readability. This addresses bug 16047 [4].
* Section 6.6: Specified that non-rectangular grid-template regions are not allowed and neither are strings of unequal lengths. This addresses bug 16429 [5]. 
* Section 6.6: Updated text describing grid-template and writing-mode sensitivity to make it clear that grid-template also refers to logical positions. This addresses bug 16041 [6].
* Section 10.2: Updated DistributeSpaceToTracks to us TracksForGrowth in step 4, rather than all Grid Tracks. This addresses bug 16584 [7].
* Section 10.2: Fixed minor spelling error "Contstriant" 
* Section 11: Added a definition of the preferred minimum width and the preferred width of the Grid element to clarify shrink-to-fit behavior. This addresses bug 16588 [8].

We look forward to comments and feedback, and would be happy to discuss these changes further during a future telcon.

Thanks, Grid Spec Editors
