The first draft of the remoteStorage protocol was originally developed by Michiel B. de Jong as part of the Unhosted project in 2011 and has been published at a W3C Community Group, which has since been deprecated. Since December 2012, the protocol specification drafts are published as Internet Drafts at the IETF.
Every 6 months a new draft version is published, incorporating feedback and contributions from developers, providers and users. All discussion and spec development is done in open collaboration on the public GitHub repository. Everyone is invited to open new GitHub issues and/or pull requests with their questions, feedback, and changes.
