great news: thanks to Cyrille we do have a patch for the CSS validator
available that would throw a warning (“Property foo is an unknown
vendor extension”) instead of an error when encountering
vendor-specific extensions.

What is the suggested/preferred process now to test and include this
in the live version of the CSS validator? (The W3C might just contact
Cyrille and me—j9t at google dot com—directly to coordinate.)


Thank you,
 Jens.
