Description Alex Mogilevsky 2012-05-08 03:00:16 UTC
in step 9.2.3 "Determine the hypothetical main size of each item", 'auto' should be treated as 'max-content'

"available space" within flexbox is not really what is available to each item, unless it is a single-item row-direction flexbox. Clipping to that seems random, it loses valuable sizing information.
Comment 1 Tab Atkins Jr. 2012-05-09 22:19:53 UTC
Done.
