Per the [https://www.w3.org/2019/04/WHATWG-W3C-MOU.html Memorandum of Understanding between W3C and WHATWG], everything is pretty much cleared up.

Some work started out in W3C Working Groups or Community Groups but has since moved to the WHATWG. This section tracks what happened in those cases.
** Forked to http://www.w3.org/TR/url/ plus various aliases and older versions (e.g. https://www.w3.org/TR/url-1/)
** Status: has a reasonable red disclaimer, but still exists.
** https://w3ctag.github.io/url/ has been fully discontinued, at least.
* Streams: https://streams.spec.whatwg.org/

** Forked to http://www.w3.org/TR/dom/
* Custom Elements: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/custom-elements.html

** Status: still exists as an outdated snapshot with no warning, causing confusion. The spec model has diverged significantly in the meantime, and the outdated version is actively wrong, not just incomplete.
** https://wicg.github.io/webcomponents/spec/shadow/ contains some content that still needs to be more rigorously specified and upstreamed
* HTML: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/
** https://github.com/WICG/webcomponents/issues/661 tracking issue for remaining upstream work
** Forked to http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/ as an outdated fork of a subset frozen in 2013.
* DOM Parsing and Serialization
** Forked to http://www.w3.org/TR/html51/ as an outdated fork of a subset frozen in 2015.
** DOMParser moved to HTML: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/dynamic-markup-insertion.html#dom-parsing-and-serialization
** Forked to https://w3c.github.io/html/ as an outdated fork of a subset frozen in early 2016 (see [https://annevankesteren.nl/2016/01/film-at-11 blog post]).
** XMLSerializer and serialization spec remains in https://w3c.github.io/DOM-Parsing/ pending WHATWG-side work
** In general all of these attempt to copy-and-paste HTML and then apply forked patches on top, but the scripts are wonky, leading to lots of errors.
** https://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Parsing/ still contains both DOMParser and XMLSerializer
** Subsets of HTML split out into other outdated forks, none with appropriate warnings:
*** http://www.w3.org/TR/webstorage/
*** http://www.w3.org/TR/workers/
*** http://www.w3.org/TR/webmessaging/ (ED is nice at least https://w3c.github.io/webmessaging/)
*** http://www.w3.org/TR/websockets/
*** http://www.w3.org/TR/eventsource/
*** http://www.w3.org/TR/2dcontext/
*** https://www.w3.org/TR/microdata/ (published as NOTE, but still contains a bunch of outdated content)

This page exists to document the status of the outdated forks of various WHATWG specifications, and any progress toward clarifying their out-of-dateness.

Per the Memorandum of Understanding between W3C and WHATWG, everything is pretty much cleared up.

Confusion mitigated

Non-forks

Some work started out in W3C Working Groups or Community Groups but has since moved to the WHATWG. This section tracks what happened in those cases.
