One thing I’ve discussed with a few people recently is more efficient ways to discover changes to web standards specs that result in documentation changes being needed.
At the moment, we most commonly discover such changes via the “dev-doc-needed” keyword being added to bugs on Mozilla’s bugzilla instance, but this is very Mozilla-centric, i.e. it only works when features are added to Gecko.
It has been argued that it would be more neutral and efficient to get this information directly from the spec teams, e.g. at W3C and WHATWG, with WHATWG probably being more relevant as this is often the first place new additions show up.
I talked to Anne van Kesteren about this, and he has already filed a github issue for WHATWG, which the team are happy to act on if we deem it a good enough idea to run with: https://github.com/whatwg/meta/issues/62
A label added to GitHub spec work relevant to the documentation would probably allow us to automatically populate our bug tracker directly from the GitHub source.
What are our thoughts on this?
