Issues some WHATWG contributors have with GitHub Issues:
 
 
 
* Lack of mailing list integration.
 
* Lack of sophisticated query mechanism found in Bugzilla.
 
* Spammable with forgeable/spoofable attribution. Example: [https://github.com/WebAudio/web-audio-api/issues/104#issuecomment-27174608 https://github.com/WebAudio/web-audio-api/issues/104#issuecomment-27174608].
 
 
 
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.

All WHATWG standards are hosted on GitHub. A lot of the discussion takes place there too.

Makefile

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).

Issues

As the new Google Code it too might disappear. Fortunately the standards themselves will survive if this happens.
