> Subject: Spec Annotation Community Group Proposed
> Date: November 24, 2014 at 2:27:22 PM EST
> To: public-new-work@w3.org
> The Spec Annotation Community Group has been proposed:
> --------------------------------------------------
> The current W3C process for commenting on specifications is complicated
> and discouraging to users. Discovering previous comments is also
> challenging, and leads to lost time. It's also difficult for spec
> editors to matching out-of-band comments sent through email or
> issue-trackers to the spec itself. Having an annotation sidebar that
> lets users create, review, and resolve spec comments would make the
> workflow much easier.
> For the past several months, the WebPlatform.org team has been working
> to integrate the Annotator project to allow spec annotations, and it is
> ready for experimental use for W3C working groups. The Spec Annotation
> Community Group will collect use cases and requirements, feature
> requests, and bug reports, and will help coordinate feature
> implementation and bug fixes.
> --------------------------------------------------
> You are invited to support the creation of this group:
>  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed#spec-annotation
> Once the group has a total of five supporters, it will be launched and
> people can join to begin work. Once launched, the group will no longer
> be listed as "proposed"; it will appear in the list of current groups:
>  http://www.w3.org/community/groups/
> In order to support the group, you will need a W3C account. To request one:
>  http://www.w3.org/community/account/request
> If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires
> the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on
> site-comments@w3.org.
> Thank you,
> W3C Community Development Team
