javifernandez has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

==  [css-flexbox][css-align][css-grid] Incompatible spec for 
align-self computed value when 'auto' ==
It seems that last month it was agreed than 'auto' values on 
align-self and justify-self compute to itself from now on, based on 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/440 .

I have to say that it's surprising that, after some many discussions, 
we've ended up with this approach. But anyway, this is in conflict 
with what the current draft of Flexible Box states for the align-self 
property:

-  https://drafts.csswg.org/css-flexbox/#align-items-property
> On absolutely positioned elements, a value of auto computes to 
itself. On all other elements, a value of auto for align-self computes
 to the value of align-items on the element’s parent, or stretch if 
the element has no parent.

I think we need to match both specs, otherwise the implementation of 
the CSS Alignment specification is going to be really difficult.
