Getting back to this and looking at what we need to do to get to a state where we can make another official publication of the Web Audio API.

1) ReSpec - Paul has been working on migrating (back) to ReSpec. The draft is at and looks good, as far as I can tell. Only obvious bug seems to be that the numbering of sections has been shifted off by one. Not sure its on purpose, or that its a good idea.

2) The AudioBuffer Data Races proposal needs to be integrated into the draft. Tracked here: - assigned to Paul. Paul, whats the status?

3) Remove the sections weve agreed should not be in the spec but in companion documentation. On this Paul wrote:

 possibly we should remove the change log too - mooted by link to github.

Paul, is this on your plate too? Id like to assign an action item for this to be tracked and completed soon.

4) The oscillator/phase pull request has been reviewed and should be merged.

Anything else?
