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

== CSS2 next edition naming ==
We previously [resolved](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2008#issuecomment-380857492) to call the next version of CSS2 "CSS 2.2".

From more recent discussions with several people in the group, it seems like there's still a sizeable number who are in favour of "CSS 2.1 2nd Edition" (or similar). The two main reasons for this:

 * The number of references around the place to CSS 2.1 is _vast_; calling it a new edition of 2.1 should help keep people looking at the right document.
 * We're not actually planning on making massively substantive changes to the spec, despite it being a new era of maintenance.
