In general, the most definitive information is from Waldemar's notes
from the face-to-face TC39 meetings.  Much of what is discussed isn't
in the latest spec drafts (modules, for example), and the wiki is both
potentially out of date (sadly, this is especially true in things I'm
responsible for) and does not necessarily have the consensus of the
committee.  It's very rare that final designs can be gleaned directly
from the mailing list, even the mailing list posts of TC39 members.

Ultimately though, the overall shape of ES6 is fairly clear (see the
harmony:proposals page); conversely, many of the fine details haven't
been fully decided, so it's not possible to know how they'll turn out
