Comment on attachment 232967 [details] Patch Looks like the mac-wk2 test failures are spurious video ones, and the efl-wk2 EWS is a random compiler crash. r=me.

Holding off from committing until we have consensus from other vendors etc.

Thanks so much for being the first ones to get an issue and patch ready. There’s now a patch waiting to land on the Mozilla side: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1024642 As stated in the comments on the above issue: we’d like to hold off on shipping this anywhere until we hear back from Eric, for obvious reasons. This includes formal proposal to the CSSWG, which I believe Blink is waiting on. The question is already out, so no need for anyone to ping him. We’ll give the word here. Thanks again, everyone.

(In reply to comment #5) > (From update of attachment 232967 [details]) > Need to fix the name. Why the change from `beccapurple` to `rebeccapurple`? Was this discussed anywhere public? Just curious.

Eric Meyer requested the name be "rebeccapurple", per Rebecca's own name preferences.

I'm a bit concerned that this "bug" was resolved without any actual technical merit. Can someone point to other CSS named colors where we've memorialized the dead children of influential members in the CSS community? (Before you say AliceBlue, that did not originate in CSS and it was for a presidents daughter and referenced in plays in 1919). This sets a very bad precedent, and I'm shocked that webkit has merged this in without seeking community approval or without it being an actual standard. The community is not as _for_ it as you might believe. I refer you to: https://news.layervault.com/stories/25847-name-663399-beccapurple-in-css4-color https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7886296 and it's also being discussed in other bug trackers about how inappropriate it is: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1024642 This is not a criticism of Eric Meyer, his daughter, or anyone else. This just requires a bit more reading into than what has been performed here.

Your slippery slope argument is invalid. No slippery slope fallacy was made. I think you should check the definition. Calling something a bad precedent does not automatically invoke some slippery slope fallacy.
