+1 on splitting:

Travis-ci currently builds a few specs but integrates in pull requests
for unrelated specifications. I also got emails from travis-ci that
another spec's build tests were (still) broken after pushing my commits.

I'm also hoping to unsubscribe GitHub notifications for a few
specifications under webappsec, which is currently impossible as
notifications are repo-wide.

I am doing this under the assumption that contentious issues will be
raised on the list and things that remain solely on GitHub are mostly
editorial. (Mike has told me there were issues that violate this
assumption, but I don't think everyone within this working group should
have to monitor both. We can discuss this in another thread, thuogh)
