    but I reckon mostly the needed changes are frontend JS changes

    Hi WICG, Maps4HTML CG here, looking for feedback and advice.
    We have a draft Use Cases and Requirements, as I gather this is an important document. Can you have a look when you have time, please? http://maps4html.github.io/HTML-Map-Element-UseCases-Requirements/ Thank you!
    I would be happy to post somewhere, but that sometimes seems to not favour questions and feedback. Maybe chat is the way to go to start with...

    @prushforth: Hey! could you join the CG (for CLA purposes) and start a thread about the use cases doc on discourse.wicg.io?
    Otherwise, if anyone here is at TPAC, come say hi! :)

    @yoavweiss @iandevlin it's nothing nasty just history of rock

    @stevefaulkner that's what you would say, wouldn't you?

    @yoavweiss I am a member of the CG, and I have posted to Discourse: https://discourse.wicg.io/t/use-cases-and-requirements-for-standardizing-web-maps/1161 Thank you!

    @yoavweiss
    @prushforth Thanks!

    IP / CLA question: is everyone who is registered on the discourse.wicg.io site a WICG CG member? IOW do I need to worry about asking people who suggest stuff to join the Maps4HTML CG and/or WICG ?
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    Not a lawyer, but
    AFAIK, discourse discussions don't have to be covered by the CLA
    OTOH, if someone is making a significant contribution over discourse, ask them to join anyway :)
    @prushforth ^^

    @cwilso
    No, they are not necessarily members. IF they are making significant contributions, it's the role of the editorial team of a given repo to ensure they join.

    @yoavweiss @marcoscaceres Can there not be an archive of discourse discussions made available, hosted somewhere that won't go away?

    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    @stevefaulkner data can be exported and archived
    I agree that discourse would have benefited from being server side rendered rather than client side
    for many reasons - archiving, SEO and mostly perf
    Steve Faulkner
    @stevefaulkner
    @yoavweiss Can the discussions be outputted to the wicg mailing list as they happen? That way there is a no JS dependent permarecord that can be referenced ?
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    I guess it's feasible
    Need to figure out how
    Michael[tm] Smith
    @sideshowbarker
    Why is the dependence of the permarecord on JS a problem?
    Michael[tm] Smith
    @sideshowbarker
    As long as the Discourse instance continues to resolve to the same expected resource/state, why is it a problem that it requires JS?
    I understand the concern in the abstract, but what I mean is, what's one example of a specific concrete problem that it causes someone in practice?
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    archive.org seems to have trouble with it
    which is surprising, since archive.org should be getting the nojs version

    @sideshowbarker:

    Why is the dependence of the permarecord on JS a problem?

    We already know that discourse in its current state causes problems for some users, providing a record of the goings on in a form that can be viewed in any device by anyone, seems like a fairly simple ask. Its the same reason why i set up a simple minimal dependency record of a11y gitter chat http://w3c.github.io/a11ySlackers/archives/index.html

    @yoavweiss
    @stevefaulkner - current plan is:
    1) Allow emails from Discourse to get posted on the list
    2) Register the list as a logged-in discourse "user"
    3) Setup the email notifications of that user to everythang
