WTFWG? Developers are fed up with WhatWG over responsive images spec

Whoa! FE-oriented people should check this… There’s a shitstorm brewing with developers being disgruntled and fed up with WhatWG and Hixie in particular. This time it’s about a proposed solution to the responsive images problem. Seems some prominent developers had quite enough of being ignored and overridden…

What’s going on? A recent article at A List Apart led to developers looking for an appropriate solution to the problem of responsive images.

As a result, some discussion started on the WHATWG mailing list months ago about what to do. The WHATWG pointed out that the list was for standardizing and suggested it would be better if the discussion were moved into a community group.
