Hi Ivan,

In previous PBG call, I heard from Rachael that she missed out a part of my comments.
So, I am providing the missing text for the same, before we approve the minutes today.
Avneesh Singh: one major issue we’ll hit is the the epub3.2 release
… and then WP/PWP
Avneesh Singh: how will we explain the rapid release or specs
… should we delay WP/PWP to prevent overwhelming the audience. We also do not want to risk losing the interest of the web community.

complete text:
Avneesh Singh: there are 3 questions.
One is strong use case for WP/PWP/EPUB 4. If publishing industry in general do not find a strong reason to move to new specification then it may happen that only a subset of industry is using WP and other new specs. While others will continue with EPUB 3 and EPUB 2. 
2nd is timeline, one major issue we may hit is EPUB 3.2, it will be out till end of this year, and just 1 / 1.5 years after that we will have WP/PWP/EPUB 4 coming out. How will industry perceive such rapid release of specs, would it be wise to delay WP/PWP/EPUB 4 a little so that industry is not confused. But then we will also have make sure of not loosing interest of web industry in PWG. I think we will need to clarify long term vision, and that we are addressing a part of it in 2020.
3rd question is about publishing membership in W3C. In case WP/PWP becomes relevant to a subset of publishing industry, then is there some effect expected on publishing membership in W3C. As per now, transitional membership ends at end of this year.
