Hi Chairs,

The following statement was made recently [1]:

 "HTMLWG has two very private lists, where all the decisions about what
actually gets merged into the spec appear to take place."

If this is the case, it appears to be very troubling state of affairs.

I would appreciate it if the veracity of this statement was confirmed by
the Chairs.
