Greetings all,

I hope you are all doing well.  I'm happy to announce that we now have a
git repository for our work:


So far there is just a README.  In the next little while I will push up a
template for a draft starting point.

For those unfamiliar with Github, who is hosting this repository for us,
they have a "watch" feature.  If you have a Github account you can watch
this project and be notified via email whenever changes are made.

How I would like to proceed is to first discuss changes and ideas on the
mailing list (or other meeting) then editors will take the agreed upon
ideas and add them to the spec.  If you are watching the repository, you'll
be able to see the changes as they are made and if they don't make sense,
we can talk about them more on the mailing list.

Because this is a git repository, anyone can clone it, make changes and
submit "pull requests".  Editors can then take the requests and merge them
into the draft.

I expect that this process will evolve organically as most open source
projects do.  Let me know if this basic development pattern seems agreeable
or not.
