> @sideshowbarker, can you comment on this? What is your recommendation to WGs for what github.io should reflect?

My recommendations in general are:

* Absolutely nobody taking time to review the spec and file issues against it ends up wasting their time reviewing a stale, out of date copy somewhere
* Even more importantly, for any specification that’s intended to be implemented, great care should be taken to ensure that no implementor ends up working from a stale, out of date copy

We have many years of evidence implementors and other contributors having their time wasted and being frustrated due to having used a stale, out-of-date spec version — in cases where WGs have not cared enough to try to make sure that doesn’t happen.

I know nothing about the specifics of the case being discussed in this issue, so I dunno, the above may actually be completely irrelevant. If so, then just ignore this. But if what’s being discussed there is in fact a case that risks causing implementors and reviewers to work from a stale, out-of-date spec version, the please do consider it carefully.
