Hi, folks–

Welcome to the Specification Annotation list [1], where we're discussing 
the implementation, development, and deployment of a new experimental 
annotation system for community comments on W3C specifications, and also 
on the same system for Web Platform Docs.

We've started some basic discussion of requirements on the WPD wiki [2]. 
We're using the Hypothes.is [3] annotation system (a specific 
implementation of the Annotator project) to comment on the requirements 
doc itself (how meta!); you can see the annotations by installing the 
alpha Hypothes.is extension [4] (in the future, no extension will be 

Down the road (hopefully sooner rather than later), we will be looking 
at what parts of the annotation system itself would benefit from 
standardization at W3C, especially with the groundwork laid by the W3C 
Open Annotation Community Group [5].

This list will be dedicated specifically to discussion of improvements 
to the spec annotation tool itself, though that may meander off into 
noodling about cool standardizable features from time to time. ^_^
