bridge between Github and public-audio list suspended (Was: [web-audio-api] (OscillatorTypes): Oscillator types are not defined (#104))


In the past few days, we have seen the bridge between our GitHub repositories and this mailing-list misused in a number of ways:

* Replies to the mailing-list without any kind of signature, which would therefore appear as coming from, and being authored by the WG. e.g:

* Spam - see

These are very difficult to avoid, and in my opinion neither spam nor unwillingly anonymised contributions are acceptable. As a result, I have suspended notifications to this mailing-list address of activity on the WebAudio repositories.

I have contacted GitHub, in hope that they may know a better way around the problem. In the meantime, I strongly suggest that members and participants of this WG go and create an account on Github, and watch our repositories over at

If for some reason you are unable or unwilling to do so, please get in touch and we will look into the situation. I understand that the need for W3C participant to create and use an account on a separate, commercial platform may be disturbing to some. I hope we can continue using what generally seems to be a useful tool.
