These are great, but it's quite sad that many in the dev community are still not seeing us as representing them here at the w3c :( We need to do a better job at communicating what we are doing - and showing proof that we are being effective. This is why I argued that Promises and NavController should be seen as a TAG deliverable (or an outcome of the TAG - I mean, 3 tag members, not including me, worked together on those). That will have real impact throughout the whole web platform and is something the TAG could point to and say "see! we did something in collaboration with TC39 and others that directly helps a massive number of Web devs". Other stuff the TAG has worked on is also important, but it's not so directly in the hands of developers.  

Also having the public list of APIs that are being reviewed/improved by the TAG would be a  great thing… and maybe having some kind of voting system for people to tell us which one we should review next would hep.  

We should also now start pointing people to GitHub… maybe w3c comms team can help tweet about some of this stuff. Their reach is pretty massive on twitter.
