FYI, the WebRTC chairs have no problem with us copying the WebRTC spec
archive to start.  It uses Travis to do some auto-checks, but we may not
need that when we start.

Dom says he's willing to help if we need it.

So there are two potential issues with starting from the WebRTC archive
model.  First, the group does most of its work in 'master', while we would
probably want to do our work in 'gh-pages' as most groups do in order to
have the github.io version be the current editors' draft.
Second, if we decide we want to use the Travis scripts there may be some
significant makefile changes needed in order to accommodate multiple

However, neither one of these is really a big deal for getting started.
Ian, what would you need from us in order to set up an archive on the w3c
github account?  Once we have that I can create the template document there.

Or, if someone else is itching to use a different starting point, please
say so.
