They are being built using new processes, so there undoubtedly will be 
glitches.  Examples: a warning on the 2dcontext editors draft to read

The master branch is what is used to publish the editor's draft.  This

Content from this branch will be cherry picked when appropriate.  Example:

the recommendation is to hold back and work through the editors that we 
in place.
