FYI, I just gave commit privileges on the Specref repo to "Specworker", a bot which will do daily updates of W3C and IETF references to the Specref DB.
The bot runs the auto-updater.js script. It runs the full test suite before committing the changes to the GitHub repo and only pushes the changes to the master branch once all tests have passed.
The tests are run a second time by Travis when the changes hit the master branch. If those succeed, the updates are automatically deployed to the nodejitsu app and are then available through the regular API.
