sideshowbarker has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/webauthn:

== Create an Explainer document ==
The Web Authentication spec is complex and really would benefit from 
being accompanied by a high-level simple informative/non-normative 
Explainer document.

A good example to model it on might be [the Explainer doc for the 
Payment Request API 
spec](https://github.com/WICG/paymentrequest/blob/gh-pages/docs/explainer.md)

And another type document to consider producing is something similar 
to [the Rationale doc for the Payment Request 
API](https://github.com/WICG/paymentrequest/blob/gh-pages/docs/rationale.md)

Both of those are simple markdown documents that do not need to go 
through the W3C publication process in order to be published, and do 
not even necessarily need to be approved formally by a WG decision. 
Instead anybody who is interested in helping with the Web Auth work 
can just write up a draft and check it into this repo and then others 
can collaborate on it, submit PRs to refine it, etc.
