Dear DPUBers,

On Friday I rewrote much of the beginning of the PWP White Paper. I've made a pull request: https://github.com/w3c/dpub-pwp/pull/34

An HTML version is available at https://rawgit.com/w3c/dpub-pwp/pull-request-dauwhe-1/index.html

My goals were:

  1.  To put somewhat emphasis on online vs offline. It's absolutely a key requirement, but in the modern web environment I don't see it as a driving force.
  2.  Similarly, packaging is also a key requirement, but I think it's better not to define our whole project in those terms, as we've seen how it causes trouble with our webbier friends.
  3.  To create at least a small distinction between portable and packaged
  4.  To integrate some of the points from my rant last Monday, especially around the importance of relative URLs.
  5.  To simplify and clarify the language used

Feedback welcomed! I would ask that this PR not be merged until we've discussed everything and reached consensus.

Thanks,

Dave
