OK, status of Exploring specs I edit:

CSS Backgrounds and Borders Level 4

  • Needs to be drafted.
  • Had been blocked on bikeshedification and update of L3, (now done and awaiting republication by W3C Staff).
  • Needs to incorporate resolutions on multiple borders

CSS Line Grid

  • In stasis, waiting for either implementation interest or an alternate, better proposal. (dbaron has been working on one)

CSS Rhythmic Sizing

  • block-step needs some edits to address floats, otherwise (like Line Grid) awaiting implementation interest or an alternate proposal
  • line-height-step is stuck on major design flaws, see various F2F discussions

CSS Inline layout Level 3

  • Not sure what exactly, but it needs some work. >_<

CSS Text Level 4

  • On hold due to higher prioritization of L3

CSS Fill and Stroke

  • Drafted, large pile of issues needing discussion / feedback. Probably should toss some of them onto the Agenda.

CSS Logical Properties

  • Already shipped feature, based on WG resolutions to release.
  • Needs issue triage for L1.
  • Probably not a lot of work left for L1.

CSS Image Values and Replaced Content Level 4

  • Awaiting fallout from L3 update.
  • Needs review, and presumably, republication.

UI-3

We're one TC away from having all tests in the test suite pass two or more implementations and be ready for PR/REC

TC: test.csswg.org/harness/test/css-ui-3_dev/single/cursor-auto-005/format/html5

Browser Bugs: developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/13874660, bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=173910, bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1376718, bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=737452

Containment

We reached CR in early August. Now we have two open issues:

  • What to do to FCify ruby
  • which box to use when an element generates several

We have no test suite in wpt, but Chrome has implemented it, so presumably there's a test suite that could be shared.
