Working Group Resolution (LC-2872):
Carlos,
Thank you for your comment.  We have moved the location of the source
documents for WCAG techniques (as well as the understanding documents and
the WCAG standard itself) to GitHub.  This is the official repository.

These source documents are updated as part of the process of updating the
public HTML versions of these documents, and thus will be in sync with the
technique document releases.  It is worth noting that there will also need
to be at least one development branch for these documents so the main
branch can represent the current public stable version and the development
branch can be modified leading up to an update.

Regarding reporting issues via GitHub, people are welcome to submit issues
or make modifications to the source documents on a local copy and submit
pull requests.  The working group will review issues and pull requests for
non-editorial issues, but simple editorial pull requests may be accepted by
the editors.
