Rick - great to see you join! Iím looking forward to evolving the sensors APIs together in this group.

To make collaboration easier, I was thinking of migrating the Editorís Draft of the Ambient Light Events spec from Hg to GitHub unless someone shouts.

Dom - could you create the following repo for the spec under the W3C org?

[Using the spec shortname as the repo name here.]

I suggest we use GH and the fork and pull model that makes it easier to review multiple proposals side by side.

Rick - I guess youíd prefer GH as well? The group could review and propose changes to PRs before we merge.

This should get you started with ReSpec:

The docs are at:

ReSpec may have some undocumented features, so ping me for help if needed. Thereís also the official support channel ( and its archives are often a helpful resource too.
