Hi all,

at some point last year we started focussing completely on shipping 5.0, 
at which point we dropped the costly and painful cherry-picking we had 
been carrying out on 5.1. We knew it was not the way we wanted to handle 
things anyway.

The new system is now up. You can see the draft up at:


There are several things to note here:

   • We dropped support for splitting the spec. Only a single-page 
version is now produced.

   • The https://github.com/w3c/html repository is no longer used for 
HTML. (It may still be used for other things.)

   • Edits to W3C HTML go into the generator's project at 
https://github.com/w3c/spork. You can track changes made there to see 
what they do to the spec. Obviously: PRs welcome.

   • Right now this only publishes HTML, but Spork supports profiles 
that can easily reuses pieces of code from one another. If you want to 
use the same project to publish something else, it's pretty straightforward.

   • I will be adding documentation to the project.

   • As soon as possible this will integrate with Echidna, and content 
will get pushed straight to /TR/.

Share & Enjoy!
