The "Upgrade Insecure Requests" specification references the WHATWG HTML spec for the "set up a worker environment settings object" algorithm, as the Web Workers Candidate Recommendation from May 2012 substantially predates the entire concept of a "settings object", and because the WHATWG is the group where work on Workers seems to be being done.
This referential choice was flagged during a discussion of transitioning the Upgrade spec to CR, where it was noted that the Web Workers editor's draft from May 2014 does contain the referenced concept. It seems appropriate, then, to bring the question to this group: does WebApps intend to update the Workers draft in TR? If so, is there a path forward to aligning the Workers document with the work that's happened over the last year and a half in WHATWG? Alternatively, does WebApps intend to drop work on Workers in favor of the WHATWG's document? It would be helpful if we could get some clarity here. :) Thanks! : https://w3c.github.io/webappsec/specs/upgrade/ : https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/workers.html#set-up-a-worker-environment-settings-object : http://www.w3.org/TR/workers/ : https://w3c.github.io/workers/ -- Mike West <mk...@google.com>, @mikewest Google Germany GmbH, Dienerstrasse 12, 80331 München, Germany, Registergericht und -nummer: Hamburg, HRB 86891, Sitz der Gesellschaft: Hamburg, Geschäftsführer: Graham Law, Christine Elizabeth Flores (Sorry; I'm legally required to add this exciting detail to emails.
