Interesting! Thanks for pointing out.

So if we manage to raise enough interest and the Hybi WG and chairs 
would accept working on WAMP as a WG item and support a workflow similar 
to what HTTP/2 did, we could continue with a (mainly) GitHub based 
workflow. Awesome!

Ah, ok. So it'll depend on how and where the chairs want to see extended 
discussions happen.

We already moved the repo from GH/Tavendo to a "neutral", dedicated place:

https://github.com/wamp-proto/wamp-proto

Also: the repo is IMO some proof that there is interest. We have 17 
contributors on the repo and something like 500 commmits. Not all of 
those commits are strictly touching the spec .. the repo was 
historically used also for the WAMP Web site (which we now moved out to 
https://github.com/wamp-proto/wamp-web)

FWIW, https://github.com/http2/http2-spec has 42 contributors and 2000 
commits (no surprise here of course).

Thanks Takeshi!
