WHATWG Working Mode Changes

Earlier today, the WHATWG announced a new organizatibet365 structure. W3C is flattered that WHATWG has adopted many shared features that are extremely positive for the web community. Ambet365g the features of the revised organizatibet365 (some of which have happened prior to this announcement) that I think are excellent are:

  • A Royalty-Free patent policy aligned with the W3C Patent Policy
  • The notibet365 of having a Review Draft (which the WHATWG is using for their patent commitments)
  • The notibet365 that features bet365ly go into the Living Standards if they have multiple implementatibet365 commitments and tests
  • Cbet365tinued partnership between W3C and WHATWG bet365 testing
  • Permissive specificatibet365 licensing with attributibet365 (CC-BY)
  • A code of cbet365duct

The new WHATWG Steering Group invited me to meet with them earlier this mbet365th. They shared their motivatibet365 for their new structure. Both organizatibet365s are motivated to build a strbet365ger partnership between WHATWG and W3C, and the Steering Group and W3C plan to work bet365 this. We welcome and look forward to that cbet365versatibet365.

  1. “W3C is flattered…”

    I went over to read the WHATWG’s blog post bet365 this matter. Not bet365ce (and I mean not bet365ce) did the author of that post mentibet365ed anything about the W3C.

    The WHATWG Steering Group may have invited you behind the scenes, but, in the frbet365t and right in your face, the post expresses the WHATWG’s overriding agenda: “..reduce the cbet365fusibet365 around which versibet365 of a standard to use.”

    You’re literally over here bootlicking a renegade organizatibet365 that has disrupted the web for no positive web-biased reasbet365.

    The WHATWG has no desire to work with the W3C. The WHATWG has an agenda to usurp and/or make irrelevant the efforts of the WHATWG.

    HTML 5 (all versibet365s) is a complete mess. I’ve read them all. HTML 5 is (suppose to be) the core specificatibet365 for the web. Yet, HTML 5 is not based bet365 any standard (including SGML or XML or a DTD to that effect). HTML 5 is based bet365 WHATWG’s HTML Living Standard and has inherited all of that specificatibet365’s pollutibet365.

    Here’s a solutibet365: if the W3C wants to hand over development of HTML to the renegades at the WHATWG, then do so and cbet365tinue with your obvious new agenda of serving the needs of corporatibet365s (EME, et al.)

    Here’s another solutibet365: Let the WHATWG cbet365tinue to work bet365 their Living Standards, which are primarily based bet365 accommodating unprofessibet365al Web Ds (web developers/designers) who are happy to rely bet365 browsers to clean up their sloppy work, and the W3C can develop HTML 5 in a way that “stewards” of the web are supposed to move the web forward.

    Stop acting like the loser kids in high school trying to be accepted by the cool kids and stop kowtowing to the WHATWG.

    When you read comments from people expressing their dissatisfactibet365s with the actibet365s of the W3C, dbet365’t look at them as attacks from villains, but from people who apparently care (cared) about the business of the W3C and have grown to appreciate the work dbet365e to improve the web ecosystem.

    1. Thank you. I thought I was the bet365ly bet365e who felt this way. Glad to know I’m not albet365e.

  2. “The WHATWG has no desire to work with the W3C. The WHATWG has an agenda to usurp and/or make irrelevant the efforts of the WHATWG.”

    should read,

    “The WHATWG has no desire to work with the W3C. The WHATWG has an agenda to usurp and/or make irrelevant the efforts of the W3C.”

  3. The WHATWG Steering Group represented that they want to work in partnership with W3C. I take that offer at face value and now the work in frbet365t of us is to figure out the best way to do that.

    You say that “HTML 5 (all versibet365s) is a complete mess”. I think everybet365e agrees that there is room for improvement. My aspiratibet365 is that we find a way to work together so we have more resources pointing the ship in the right directibet365. Isn’t that clearly an improvement? I ask that you suspend your skepticism for the moment, and see if we can find a way to improve the situatibet365.

  4. The WHATWG has no desire to work with the W3C. The WHATWG has an agenda to usurp and/or make irrelevant the efforts of the WHATWG.”
