Leonard,

It’s also getting signal boosted by Alex Russell right now, so I think it would be an excellent idea to start adding issues to the proposal.

Thanks,

Alan

I found it interesting enough to write a little script to create book content in this packaging format. I also heard several discussions at TPAC where people expressed interest in this for exactly the reasons described in the explainer. Given the TAG’s involvement and Google’s interest, I would say yes, this is something :).

Ivan – do you know if there is any actual support for this by the community?   There are numerous problems with their proposal and before I start putting issues in git, I’d like to know if this is really something or just an idea…

Thanks,
Leonard

Hi all,

this document may be of interest:

https://github.com/dimich-g/webpackage/blob/master/README.md


It comes from a person at Google and it shows that there is still an interest in an alternative web packaging format. I think raising issues, or simply draw the attention on what we do as a clear use case is forth the while

(Running to a whole day meeting in the sunny San Francisco, so I cannot really dive in it this week…)

Ivan

P.S. Thanks to Mike who drew my attention on this
