I’ve put together a list of questions/discussion points that I think were floating around to restart the discussion. Please add to the list or adjust the questions as you see fit:

Let me try to be a little bit more specific for this one. PWP being a kind of a conceptual thingy, I think what we have to talk about is what would we have to see in a manifest *representing* a PWP. What are the information that we need to get the whole architecture running?

(We have a reference to manifests and their importance in the document, but it is only a skeleton without meat:-)
