Yes and agree (I've been meaning to suggest this).

I'll ask W3C staff to create a new touch-events repo within 
<https://github.com/w3c/> :-).

Philippe - would you please create the 
<https://github.com/w3c/touch-events> rep for the Touch Events CG or 
tell me how to go about getting that directory created? The TE CG wants 
to use this new repo for Touch Events v1 errata (and possibly additional 
work such as features for v.next).

No (i.e. not a problem).

BTW, my understanding is that it is possible to copy all of the hg 
history to Github so if that is the case, that should be done. Philippe 
might be able to confirm that.

I recommend just starting a new touch-events repo within
