Dear Audio WG participants,

As discussed at our teleconference today [1], we are considering tweaking the process by which we manage the evolution of the web audio API specification to be more "patch-based".

[1] http://www.w3.org/2013/08/15-audio-minutes.html

One proposal to help with this evolution is to migrate the versioning of Web Audio API drafts, as well as issue tracking, to our group's Github space [2], as is already the case for the web midi spec [3]

[3] https://github.com/WebAudio/web-midi-api

During our call, I (and others) raised the concern that there is presently no working bridge between Github and our mailing-list, and that the current bridge between Bugzilla and our list is very much appreciated. This should probably not be seen as a showstopper for the change if there is consensus in the group about migrating to Github for the web audio api - we would “just” need to make the mail bridge work.

I invite proponents of the move to describe in more detail how the move would help us better manage the status of issues and their resolution - something which was raised as an important feature.
