Ximin, first, thanks a lot for your continued work on this. Your recent mails
on this topic made me smile.

Second, please don't "finalise and publish it" as just a version 1.0. Please
call it 0.9-rc1 (or such, the "rc1" part is the important bit) and ask for
feedback, both on our lists, the weekly news and even via twitter.

Once the feedback has settled, call it 1.0 and publish it.

do you consider this rc1 already? I'd like nice HTML output of rc1 ;-)

I've created a jenkins job to build the html, see 

It failed with

make: *** No rule to make target 'build-path-prefix-map-spec.html'.  Stop.

which is because the build job basically calls "make $reponame.html" (which
works nicely for source-date-epoch-spec.git but not so much for

And while this could be fixed in the Makefile, I'd recommened to rename
spec.xml in build-path-prefix-map-spec.git to build-path-prefix-map-spec.xml,
what do you think?
