A few of us spent some cycles this week to figure out how to include
editor's drafts in the /TR page, following [1, 2].

At this point, if your published TR draft contained a link to the
"Latest editor's draft", such as [3], the TR database knows about it. It
know about 147 editor's drafts at this time. We're looking for the
keywords "editor" and "draft" in the beginning of your spec so this
should handle all the variants. If you don't want it to appear on
the /TR page, then don't include it in your TR draft, or avoid the
keywords (but, in that case, I would question why it's ok to put the
link in the document but not on /TR itself).

It's only a small step forward, ie this is not a major redesign of
the /TR page, nor do we make a copy of the editor's drafts on the W3C
web site at this point. The majority of the EDs are already hosted by
W3C (www, dev, dvcs, or w3c-test.org).

We picked the term "nightly draft" instead of "editor's draft" since
developers will be more familiar with the meaning. At this time, we
didn't put a disclaimer regarding the status of the nightly drafts.

Here is the static default view for TR with all the editors we know

This is going to be the future "Nightly drafts only" view: (this one
doesn't have all of the ED drafts yet)

Note the UI difference between the two when one selects "Nightly drafts
only" in the selection form at the beginning (one disable some of the
options in sort criteria, while the other remove them). Let me know
which UI you prefer.

I don't know when this is going to go into production at this time and
we didn't write all the necessary code for it yet, but we'd like to
deploy sooner rather than later.

After that, the systeam will work on the API to expose the data to the
outside but no ETA on this yet either.

Feedback is welcome of course.

Best regards,
