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

== [css-position] Does position:fixed create a stacking context? ==
>From [Minutes Telecon 
2015-07-01](https://www.w3.org/blog/CSS/2015/07/02/minutes-telecon-252/):
> **Resolved**: Make `position: fixed` a full stacking context
> - Rossen will write the text change in place it in the 
[Positioning](http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-position/) spec. Bert will 
then take the same text and add it as an errata to [CSS 
2](http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css2/cover.html).

I found the changes in the [CSS 2 
spec](https://drafts.csswg.org/css2/changes.html#s.9.9.1).

However, the definition of [`z-index: 
auto`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-position/#valdef-z-index-auto) in 
CSS Position does not have that change, and I can't find anything 
which explains that `position: fixed` creates a stacking context.

Did the WG change their minds? Did Rossen forgot to update CSS 
Position?
