    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?

    @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

    @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
    Regardless, I think it would be cool if we'd list the accessibility issues of Discourse and push for fixing them
    (same for perf, it would be cool to get server side rendering going for all users)

    @yoavweiss sounds perfect, and yes I very much agree that the interaction UI of discourse needs work but it is a matter of time to investigate, file bugs, suggest fixes etc...
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    I'm very much aware of it, but if we want our means of communications to be accessible for everyone...
    (and I would argue that Discourse is significantly more accessible than mailing lists to large chunks of the population)

    @stevefaulkner
    @yoavweiss i agree

    Any idea how to get the IPR check for a pull request to re-check?
    ah, nevermind, found it
    Ade Bateman
    @adrianba
    is one of the co-chairs here?
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    adrianba: I'm around :)
    Ade Bateman
    @adrianba
    hi yoav, any chance you could give me write access to the paymentrequest repo
    I need to fix some links that were broken when the master branch was removed
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    sure
    Ade Bateman
    @adrianba
    thx
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    adrianba: should be good to go
    let me know if that's not the case
    Ade Bateman
    @adrianba
    thanks, will try now
    don't think it worked
    when I clicked to edit a file it says "You’re editing a file in a project you don’t have write access to. Submitting a change to this file will write it to a new branch in your fork adrianba/paymentrequest, so you can send a pull request."
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    hmm
    adrianba: I sent you an invite, maybe you should accept it?
    cause I still don't see you in the members list
    Ade Bateman
    @adrianba
    ah, got it in mail, surprisingly didn't show up on the web site :)
    working now - thanks!
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss

    Hi folks,

    I had a mental note to ask you if you were maintaining former Specifiction niw WICG Discourse instance and if you wanted to adjust the color scheme.

    You can use the one i made upwith WebPlatform color scheme fork. Take a look at this issue notes below.

    webplatform/ops#152

    @yoavweiss
    @renoirb: Thanks, will take a look

    @adrianba
    Does somebody need to do something manual to get the changes from https://github.com/wicg/wicg.io to https://wicg.io/ ?
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    @adrianba: Yeah, I need to pull that on the server
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    @adrianba: ugh. updated it, but the old version is cache in SW and won't update...
    Ade Bateman
    @adrianba
    we don't have SW yet so looks great to me ;o)
    thanks
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    :D

    I hope the WICG isn’t going to become another place where people fork copies of other people’s specs.
    Peter Rushforth
    @prushforth
    Forgive my ignorance - nobody has yet sent me a pull request- but isn't a fork a pre-requisite to creating a pull request? And aren't pull requests a virtue in this context?

    @MichielBijl
    THat's what I thought?
    Yoav Weiss
    @yoavweiss
    @sideshowbarker - I won't go into the general debate, but in this particular case, it's not a "fork copy of other people's spec" whatwg/dom@253a21b
