Dear all,

as agreed on the telco, I have made some changes.

The first and most important is that the address/name of the repository has changed, due to the change of the term Document to Publication. Sorry about that. The draft is at:

http://w3c.github.io/dpub-pwp/ <http://w3c.github.io/dpub-pwp/>

the github repo being

https://github.com/w3c/dpub-pwp <https://github.com/w3c/dpub-pwp>

(it was pwd instead of pwp…). Hopefully, this is the last change in the URL.

I have made the following changes, mainly on the terminology section:

- Changed (Portable) Web Document to (Portable) Web Publication everywhere in the text and, in particular, in the terminology (glossary) section[1]
- Added a definition for "Content", essentially taking it over from WCAG
- Changed the term 'collated' to 'aggregated' for the definition of a Web Publication
- Added a bullet item emphasizing the fact that a Web Publication has a URI denoting the whole set of resources
- Added the font example that we used in our discussion to give an example for the 'fuzziness' of portable vs. non-portable publications
- I have added a separate section on states[2], but switched to the protocol vs. file and dropped the online vs. offline. Have added the typical example table, but also added some notes on the other corner cases

Section 4 still needs work on adopting the state terminology, but I wanted to get some feedback before proceeding on that one.

Remember that the goal we have is to get to a version next Monday that would be acceptable as a first public working draft. A FPWD is not supposed to be complete or perfect so, at this point, what we have to decide is whether the document is "good enough". We can and should work on it further later, of course…

All comments, (github) issues, pull request, etc, are welcome...
