Kickoff application manifest work

While we transition the application manifest spec from SysApps to WebApps, I'd like to kick off discussion by encouraging people to either discuss the current proposal here or over on GitHub. 

The current proposal can be found here:

Repo is here:

Things that we need to discuss: 

* what's the problem we are trying to solve? (scope for the work).
* what actual manifest properties are useful? are any missing? 
* do any members need to be refactored to better meet the use cases? 
* how do we associate a manifest with a web page? 
* More open issues:

Following in the footsteps of Navigation Controller and DOM Futures, it would be ideal to have a core group of individuals helping out with this effort. If you want to be part of a core team, please let me know and I can add you on GitHub (or just add your self to watch the repository on and file bugs/ask questions as you see fit. 

If you want to discuss the proposal directly with me, I'm marcosc IRC on both freenode (#whatwg) and w3c (#webapps). 

Kind regards,

Marcos Caceres
