I think we’ve gone beyond that in some issues. I will bring some issues to the list. Deciding which topics are scope is an issue to be discussed on the list.

Dear Tzviya,

Github issues, when not strictly scoped, are not the panacea, but email exchanges, bloated with "replies to", would add some more mess.
Let's rather scope the issues and try to maintain some order inside.
About the philosophical level of the current discussions, is trying to find a proper balance between the Web architecture and the EPUB history a philosophical thing? I don't think so.

Dear Beloved PWG,

I am thrilled that we have so much activity on GitHub [1], but GitHub is not meant to replace the email list. Let’s review the guidelines on our Website.

“The group intends to use the [GitHub] repositories’ issue management extensively to discuss technical problems and propose solutions.” [2]

“Although it is expected that a large portion of the technical discussion will happen via the issues mechanism of GitHub, the primary mailing list may also be used for overarching technical as well as business, outreach, administrative, etc, topics.” [3]

I think we have been having a lot of overarching technical discussions on GitHub. Some of the issues that started as technical issues have morphed into philosophical debate. As Garth mentioned, on Monday we are going to start asking how your writing is going. It seems to me that a lot of energy is going into defending philosophy when you could be using this time to draft a section of the FPWD. We can argue about the details after you draft something. I promise we will argue.
