doiuse.com compatibility linting?

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.216.66

mdn-services,

(Welcome to the first thread of the list!)

For the 2nd quarter in a row, "a service to test across browsers" in the
top 3 services that developers say "No, but I need to" use this. [1]

At the Compatibility Summit last week, Justin Crawford showed our MDN
"Pro"/Services plans for compatibility - i.e., build automation around web
compatibility data. [2]

He also learned about doiuse.com, which scans CSS for features covered by
caniuse.com, and reports on browser compatibility. [3][4]

doiuse.com needs some work (e.g., it's down as I write this ;), but John
Karahalis is considering working on & with it as a potential
MDN-sponsored/hosted compat linting tool/service in Q2.

What do you all think - is doiuse a good starting point? What changes seem
most important to build it up into an MVP by the end of Q2? I.e., something
we would be happy to blog about on hacks.mozilla.org? :)

Thanks,
-L
