This sounds great. It would be cool if editors ping the relevant list as working drafts get updated, just so everyone can use the lists as an ambient feed of what's going on. But an actual CFC process seems unnecessary.

For specs that are passed FPWD, and thus where consensus to publish there has been reached, this sounds like a good idea.

Though it might also be good to enable anyone to raise concerns about a spec such that automatic WDs aren't published until concensus is reached again.

Hi Art,
I'm wondering if we can change the group's work mode to not requiring CFCs for ordinary working drafts? Unless I'm not getting something, they seem to add an unnecessary delay to getting stuff published.

Kind regards,

Marcos Caceres

It aims to standardize all widely implemented parts of the spec that are compatibly supported across major implementations in a *timely* manner. Hence the number one to-do is to enhance the pass ratio of the test suite [1] by interacting with the implementors.
