W3C and WHATWG Team Up to Combine HTML and DOM Specifications
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) signed an agreement with the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) to work toward a single version of the HTML and DOM specifications. According to the press release, “Motivated by the belief that having two distinct HTML and DOM specifications claiming to be normative is generally harmful for the community, and the mutual desire to bring the work back together, W3C and WHATWG agree to [a list of] terms,” which includes the following:
- W3C and WHATWG work together on HTML and DOM, in the WHATWG repositories, to produce a Living Standard and Recommendation/Review Draft-snapshots
- W3C stops independent publishing of a designated list of specifications related to HTML and DOM and instead will work to take WHATWG Review Drafts to W3C Recommendations
The organizations published a Memorandum of Understanding that offers more details.
For more information, read the press release.
