No, but you instantly get a crapload of people automatically subscribed to watch for changes. You can see them all here:

It also makes it much easier for people to find the spec. I don’t need to remember what Cam’s GH username is every time I want to look at the spec, I just type github.com/whatwg in my address bar.

Well, otherwise, he needs to add the relevant people to his repository (in case he vanishes or whatever, so we can review and merge PRs as needed). Having only one person in control of the spec and administration is not ideal.

So, go on Cam, be a champ and move it to the WHATWG … and ignore that Robin character ;)
