As you may be aware, the HTML standard is co-developed by the W3C and the 
WHATWG. As part of this, the WHATWG is always looking for use cases that 
have not yet been properly addressed by the Web platform. Since Sam 
recently posted an e-mail indicating that the W3C was interested in new 
features for HTML, I thought this may be a good time to remind everyone 
that you are also welcome to participate in the WHATWG mailing list, where 
we discuss adding new features to the HTML standard. For example, at the 
moment we are discussing video conferencing, a networking protocol for 
peer-to-peer games, and how to style <details> (amongst other things).

For more information, please see the WHATWG home page, which has links to 
the FAQ and mailing lists:


If you would like to request a feature, the best way to do so is to 
describe the problem that you are running into. The FAQ (linked to from 
the page above) describes the information we look for in such suggestions.

There is no deadline for participating; the WHATWG develops the HTML 
standard continuously.
