I always liked the "official" nature of this list.

Is there any chance of an official slack Channel we could join instead?

Stack Overflow can get pretty noisy with no clear and definitive stance sometimes:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/html5 <https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/html5>

Or are the leading lights of WHATWG lurking on Stack Overflow ready to explain the official stance on a specific standard when needed?

I sometimes worry that traffic has fallen away as new web developers don't really care about standards!
