Latest commit 990a157 Jun 15, 2017 @zcorpan zcorpan committed on GitHub Meta: Update link for the WHATWG Code of Conduct


This repository hosts the XMLHttpRequest Standard.

Code of conduct

We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all. Please read and respect the WHATWG Code of Conduct.

Contribution opportunities

We'd love your help fixing outstanding issues. Pull requests for typographical and grammar errors are also most welcome.

We'd be happy to mentor you through this process. If you're interested and need help getting started, leave a comment on the issue or ask around on IRC.

Pull requests

In short, change xhr.bs and submit your patch, with a good commit message. Consider reading through the WHATWG FAQ if you are new here.

Please add your name to the Acknowledgments section in your first pull request, even for trivial fixes. The names are sorted lexicographically.

If you want to preview the spec locally, you can either use a locally installed copy of Bikeshed by running make or use the HTTP API version by running make remote.

If you want to do a complete "local deploy" including commit and/or branch snapshots, run make deploy.

Merge policy

If you can commit to this repository, see the html repository's TEAM for guidelines.


Tests can be found in the XMLHttpRequest/ directory of web-platform-tests.
