Hi

We want the revisions of the drafts to be available through the website as well so that everyone can see what is happening and comment on things. However we need the development version to be clearly indicated as such, and also to include a link back to the latest stable release version.

Probably the best thing to look at to get an idea of what I mean is the W3C model for spec development. There you have an editors draft which builds on the last stable release. Both are interlinked with the details at the top of the doc clearly stating whether it is a published or editors draft version.

Hi Alasdair,

I was told the staging area was the specifications repository in GitHub,
but from one of your previous emails it looks that the staging area has
not been set up yet. could you please clarified?

Regards,
