Laurent - good rewrites, but let me play with it a bit…

Do we really need the middle sentence? It doesn’t say anything useful (IMO).   The first and third, however are good.   We can then put it all together as:

A Web Publication (WP) is a collection of one or more Web resources organized together through a manifest and presented to users using Open Web Platform technologies.

Now to apply some simplification to the Manifest definition:

A manifest is structured information about a Web Publication, such as informative metadata and the default reading order of its primary constituents.

I’m not thrilled with that since it’s still not clear to me if we want all that stuff (metadata + resources + reading order + ….) in a single “manifest” *or* we will end up with multiple ones (but even then, it may still conceptually be a manifest).

Thoughts?

Leonard

The current definition is facing a large set of comments. From these comments, I tried a variant of Matt's proposal:

A Web Publication (WP) is a collection of one or more Web resources organized together through a manifest. The content of a Web Publication can take a wide variety of forms, from formal artistic and intellectual works to ad hoc documents and memos. Web Publications are presented to end-users using Open Web Platform technologies.

A manifest is the structured information necessary for the proper identification and description of a Web Publication, plus the default reading order of its primary constituents.
