There's no strawman:* page talking about "let const", and several
recent posts reiterated its demise. But you're right that
proposals:block_expressions still talks about "let const".
Rather than edit the proposals:* section of the wiki I propose we
ignore it for now. Instead of breaking links into the wiki, I will edit
to move the link to the ES4 proposals:proposals page down to "Known
obsolete", or just remove it (and the "Known obsolete" section). I
will remove the feature_specs, discussion, spec, and ri lines too.
That will leave
The 'strawman' namespace is intended to hold Harmony proposals prior
The 'harmony' namespace is intended to hold proposals on the “ES-
The 'meetings:' namespace is for posting meeting agendas, minutes,
The 'clarification:' namespace is intended to capture high-level
issues that need clarification.
The 'resources:' namespace is for uploading papers or listing pointers
to external sites of interest to the work of this group.
The 'es3.1:' namespace is for the “maintenance of es3” work
The 'ses:' namespace is for the Secure ECMAScript work
Not perfect, just a good start. I doubt anyone will object, but here's
a quick proposal before I dispose (tomorrow).
