The Editors and active contributors of Service Workers intend to publish 
a Candidate Recommendation soon (details below). Consequently, this is a 
Request for Comments by the WebApps group to seek wide review of the 
latest version of the spec:

<https://slightlyoff.github.io/ServiceWorker/spec/service_worker/>

The open issues for Version 1, and the spec's version history are [1] 
and [2], respectively.

If you have any comments, we prefer you submit them as Github issues 
[3]; otherwise, please send your comments to the public-webapps list [4] 
using a Subject: prefix of "[serviceworkers]".

-Thanks, AB
