Apparently they don't have an overlapping mission, and Allan wants to keep them separate.  Okay by me :)

As of such, might be better to move all this experimental stuff to another location on the repository.

What is the current process for beta bundles?

I'm working on a new version of the Ruby syntax.
It's called Ruby Experimental and is in the experimental bundle.
It's not a pure replacement yet since it just includes the Ruby syntax instead of duplicating and modifying the existing Ruby syntax.

There's also a beta HTML bundle being worked on.

Should we have an explicit BETA bundle for working on new versions of existing things?
Should we include the new syntax in the existing bundle with a BETA tag or something?

That option seems to make the best sense actually.
Unless anyone seriously objects, I'm going to move Ruby Experimental into the Ruby bundle and make sure that you can only get at it by explicitly selecting it.

I'm not sure if that option would work for HTML2 since the beta HTML2 bundle contains way more than just a new syntax.
