@xproc @ndw Any summary of the diffs? Or an actual diff with 1.0?—@ebruchez
@ebruchez @xproc Too much churn for a useful diff from the 1.0 spec, I'm afraid.—@ndw
@ebruchez @xproc There's a Change Log appendix, linked from the status section.—@ndw
@ndw @xproc Thanks, I would have seen it if I hadn't been too lazy to read the beginning :)—@ebruchez

There's something slightly terrifying about a big pot of boiling sugar syrup.—@ndw

@rdeltour Calabash uses @ndw’s that doesn’t feature the specific bug I’ve encountered. Yet I find it harder to debug—@gimsieke

@JeanKaplansky @ndw I use different ones for different groups of people—@laurendw
@laurendw @ndw me too... but there are just so many people I know!—@JeanKaplansky
@ndw right, that. I guess some people live in Evernote?—@laurendw
