Most WHATWG standards are hosted on GitHub.


To run the standard's Makefile (i.e. to run "make" in your terminal) you need to have whatwg/xref in the same parent directory as the repository of your standard (e.g. whatwg/dom). In addition you need to have installed Anolis (ms2ger/anolis).

On using GitHub Issues

Most WHATWG standards are not using GitHub Issues.

Issues some WHATWG contributors have with GitHub Issues:

  • Lack of mailing list integration.
  • Lack of sophisticated query mechanism found in Bugzilla.

And with GitHub in general:

  • As the new Google Code it too might disappear.
  • Hard to find new standards-related activities as people tend to put them in private and/or personal repositories.
  • Notification system is unclear.
