Hi Nozomu,

Brendan has indeed discovered he doesn't have time to champion the proposal through TC39, so I removed it while I searched for a new champion. Good news on that front - I have found one! Gorkem Yakin works on the Chakra team and is available to help move this proposal forward. I will also help out where I can. I've added the proposal back to the stage 0 list!

Subject: Look-behind proposal in trouble

Apparently my proposal for adding the look-behind assertions to RegExp has been in trouble. I would like to ask anyone for help.

The following story is what I know about the proposal after my previous

I created a pull request for the proposal in July and sent an email to Brendan Eich asking if I can put his name as a champion:

I have not received a reply to my email, but I received a notification email in September that replying to the pull request, the proposal was moved to stage 0. Today, however, I just noticed that the proposal had been dropped from stage 0, stating "RegExp lookbehind has no champion".

I am uncertain about what happened. Does this mean that Brendan Eich is no longer a champion or did not take a champion on from the beginning or ...?
