Ok, I've added a system where you can subscribe to specific sections of
the spec to be notified of changes.
The available topics currently are:
HTML (everything not covered by another topic)
HTML Syntax and Parsing
Offline Web Applications
Video Text Tracks (<track>, WebVTT)
Video and Audio
I'm happy to add new topics if there's enough demand. When I add a topic,
the topic that previously covered that part of the spec will normally be
notified as part of the checkin that changes the labeling.
To subscribe to a topic, click the "Edit Subscriptions" button at the top
right of the spec, and follow the on-screen instructions.
I haven't fully tested this yet so if you run into any problems, e.g. I
spam you every last edit fifteen times over, let me know.
