Unclear where to post a use case to help improve App Cache #35

This site is awesome, but could be more awesome if we can direct feedback about a specific spec to a specific channel. For example, I just ran across https://plus.google.com/u/0/106759696088618829172/posts/BHbdaM9eed4 to which I thought, "Perfect! Some real life feedback on App Cache." So I went to movethewebforward.org to see how to give the feedback, and it wasn't clear.

I scrolled down to Give Feedback on Specifications, but I wasn't sure which mailing list I should send the feedback on App Cache to. There's a separate section on "File Bugs", but no link to the WHATWG or W3C bug database? (not sure if those are real things, apologies if I just made them up)

Specific feedback is to make it much more explicit on how to submit ideas/feedback on specific specs. Can the site be much more prescriptive?

Thanks for making this page!

Application Cache is specced here: http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/offline.html

Clicking the Help button at the bottom right will alert a message:

Select a section by clicking it, then enter a message in the box and press the "Submit Review Comment" button. This will cause your comment to be filed, along with your IP address, in the W3C HTML working group Bugzilla, where it will be reviewed and eventually addressed. You won't get a reply, though. If you want to receive a reply, please instead send e-mail to the mailing list mentioned at the top of this specification.

And sure enough, at the top of http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/index.html it says:

IRC: #whatwg on Freenode

I’d say if you have a use case to present, it’s probably best to just email (whatwg@whatwg.org).

Hope this helps!

@divya committed dd94613 which hopefully makes it more obvious how to give feedback on the HTML spec.
