Thanks, Hugh. I had the same thought earlier about "explicitly authored/created" and removed it. The current definitions are at [1].

 

I'm fine with removing the online/offline part, too. I'll get that updated shortly. I made one other adjustment to the reading order, as "not required" sounded like the reading order itself might be optional instead of the user following it being optional. I moved that explanation to a definition of "default reading order".

Not sure I caught every word in this thread, but I would like to +1 this general definition: 

 

*	A Web Publication is an explicitly authored/created collection of one or more constituent resources, bound together through a manifest into a single logical work with a defined though not necessarily required reading order. The Web Publication is uniquely identifiable, presentable using Open Web Platform technologies, and available online or off. (from Greg/Matt)

This seems to be closing in on the minimum viable definition, which should be the target here (IMO). What minimum pieces of data do we need to know we are looking at a web publication?

— collection of resources

— with a manifest

— uniquely identifiable   

— suggested reading order

 

probably unnecessary?

— “available online" (isn’t this implied?)

 

probably aspirational:

— "available offline” is, I would argue, aspirational but not necessarily strictly required?  

 

probably not necessary:

— “explicitly authored/created” … the spec should not care how the thing came to exist, just whether it is a thing or not. And, how would a validation system check to see if something is explicitly authored or created?  

 

So, if I could make a +1 minus a few things, I would edit down to: 

 

*	A Web Publication is a [delete:n explicitly authored/created] collection of one or more constituent resources, bound together through a manifest into a single logical work with a defined though not necessarily required reading order. The Web Publication is uniquely identifiable, presentable using Open Web Platform technologies[delete:, and available online or off]. (from Greg/Matt)

Giving us:

 

*	A Web Publication is a collection of one or more constituent resources, bound together through a manifest into a single logical work with a defined though not necessarily required reading order. The Web Publication is uniquely identifiable, presentable using Open Web Platform technologies. (from Greg/Matt)
