Dear Chairs,

I have just announced on the spec-prod mailing list a new way to get
support from your groups are facing WebIDL-related design issues (see
below). If your group has WebIDL-based specifications, this may be
useful to circulate with your editors if they're not subscribed to
spec-prod (and may be a good opportunity to invite them to subscribe if so).

Hi Spec Editors,

If you edit specs that rely on WebIDL to describe your APIs, you may
encounter cases where you would like to express something in IDL that is
forbidden or seemingly impossible to do.

Based on discussions that occurred in the context of the webref project
[1], a small group of people have volunteered to serve as a support team
when this kind of discussions emerge. At this point, Domenic Denicola,
Timothy Gu and Marcos Caceres have volunteered (with Francois Daoust and
myself more as observers) - they can magically invoked in a github
discussion happening in the w3c and WICG github organizations
respectively with the @w3c/webidl-design and @WICG/webidl-design monikers.

We're starting with these two organizations, but can extend it to others
where WebIDL is being developed as the need arises and as we gain
experience with that set up.

If you're available to provide expertise on WebIDL design and want to be
added to that team, please get in touch!
