--------------------
The current W3C process for commenting on specifications is complicated
and discouraging to users. Discovering previous comments is also
challenging, and leads to lost time. It's also difficult for spec
editors to matching out-of-band comments sent through email or
issue-trackers to the spec itself. Having an annotation sidebar that
lets users create, review, and resolve spec comments would make the
workflow much easier.


For the past several months, the WebPlatform.org team has been working
to integrate the Annotator project to allow spec annotations, and it is
ready for experimental use for W3C working groups. The Spec Annotation
Community Group will collect use cases and requirements, feature
requests, and bug reports, and will help coordinate feature
implementation and bug fixes.


This group will not publish specifications.
