Hi Jen.

LOVE IT!

Can I recommend this slight change to the headings?

Reviewed and complete - "Ready to use" makes me wonder about the others, if they're not good at all.
Almost done - Like it
In progress - Like it
Started - "Coming later" indicates there's nothing there.

I would move WebGL to the Started bucket, unless someone's added reference pages that I don't know of.
Also, for the In progress area:
ARIA
Appcache
Geolocation
Navigation timing
Performance timing
User timing
Web sockets
Webworkers
XMLHttpRequest (XHR)

It's not exhaustive, nor do I have a solid understanding of which of these are "Started" only. Can others chime in?

Thanks so much for doing this.

Eliot

Subject: list of WPD, rated ready & not-ready

If you look at http://webplatform.jensimmons.com/design/, there's a set of colored boxes part-way down the page....
(see also screenshot: http://monosnap.com/image/PQwKhS8sakqKzqINvhQi8lqkjuy5Cn.png)

Basically the idea here is to create the beginning of a master portal into the docs from the home page. But one that for the moment serves two functions: 1) to give people an overall idea of what WPD will cover & do once it's done, and 2) show people which parts of the docs are ready vs needing work. I think this will encourage people to help out. Clearly show people that hey, we know a lot of this site is empty & under construction. Show people, hey, these are the reference docs you can use already....

So here's my question:
What technologies should be listed in each of these four sections.
1) Ready to Use
2) Almost Done
3) In Progress
4) Coming Later

And of course - do we want four buckets? (Or three?) Are these names good names?

But most importantly, are the technologies listed in each bucket the right ones? What can go into "Ready to Use"? What else should be under "Coming Later"? Etc.
