Thanks, that looks close, but it's missing at least 2 specifications:
https://wicg.github.io/webpackage/loading.html should be under
https://api.w3.org/users/a7a5jzj9hvs400sws4owc4sk8csk84w/specifications?apikey=oq0abw4w2bkwcs0k0kws44sok4cg48w&embed=1,
and https://webbluetoothcg.github.io/web-bluetooth/ should be under
https://api.w3.org/users/jt1cdbkgur4o8c0okkkw4kksosskwg4/specifications?apikey=oq0abw4w2bkwcs0k0kws44sok4cg48w&embed=1.
Both of these are included in https://github.com/w3c/browser-specs.

Do you know how the W3C API gets its list of specs and why it might be
missing some?

Thanks,
Jeffrey
