I see.

Now I it's clear that everything is available publicly I guess what
I'm mostly looking for is some way to report bugs. The nice thing
about https://github.com/tobie/specref is that the database is in
GitHub and you can inspect it and report issues against it. Even
though the database is fully automated, that still makes it easier to
inspect things manually.

E.g., it's unclear to me whether Shepherd indexes all WHATWG Standards
or whether some cannot be indexed currently. It's unclear what
shortname they've been assigned and why e.g., "dom" doesn't get HTTPS

Having it all somewhere as a dump on GitHub or some such would make
that a bit more visible.
