Hi folks,

Noticing that tracking the status of the specs listed in the spec Core Mobile Web Platform Report and the Standards for Web Applications on Mobile: current state and roadmap is at the top of your charter, and knowing how painful it is to track the status of specs on the REC track, I wanted to draw your attention to Specref[1], a spec database maintained by a few folks including one of your co-chairs.

The data it contains is kept up to date by a nearly fully automated process. It's API should allow you to really easily issue a report/build a website of the status of specs pertaining to mobile Web. Getting the status of all the specs in the Coremob 2012 report is as simple as making an HTTP get request to a single URL[2]. It's JSON-P and CORS enabled. Given how much time we spent gathering that data and keeping it up to date in Coremob, this should be a real time saver.

Of course, the output of the testing work I'm doing (test coverage, test results) will be compatible with that dataset (same indexes) and accessible through a similar API, granted, of course, we get sufficient funding to carry this effort through.

As I mentioned on irc, I'll be a TPAC and I'm happy to come give the IG an update on the testing effort.
