The Spec Editors Community Group has been launched:
The Spec Editors Community Group aims to be an inclusive space where spec editors, and those wanting to become spec editors, can learn from each other.
The Spec Ed CG focuses on the practice (the art?) of writing technical specifications across the Web ecosystem (W3C, WHATWG, ECMA, IETF, etc.). By looking across the ecosystem, we hope to improve our specification development practices at the W3C.
As part of this CG, we hope to run hands-on virtual tutorial sessions that will cover:
- spec writing: writing algorithms, types of statements.
- tooling: ReSpec and Bikeshed.
- testing: Web Platform Tests.
- How review specs: what to look for, commenting on pull requests.
- leveraging fundamental technologies: WebIDL, Infra standard, HTML, etc.
- Using Github effectively for spec development: labels, milestones, managing your community.
- More things! Let us know…
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2021-04-08 by Marcos Caceres. The following people supported its creation: Coralie Mercier, Michael[tm] Smith, Ian Jacobs, Xiaoqian Wu, Chris Lilley, David Carlisle, Jeffrey Yasskin, Marcos Caceres, Atsushi Shimono. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.
We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
