As I've just indicated on the W3C API discussion [1], I don't think
you'll get the info you want from the W3C API for Community Groups,
given both a lack of systematicity in formally recording them [2], and
the fact that even when they're recorded, their associated editors are not.

I think that customizing the reffy crawler [3] is probably the most
robust path to success, and should not be too hard to pull together [4]
- essentially writing a small module à la
to extract the editor data (and probably disabling all other modules to
make the crawl faster to run).

Reffy is made to run on the list of specs maintained in browser-specs
[5] - if your crawl needs to run on a different list, some further
customization might be needed (happy to help with them).
