DPUB IG Telco, 2015-10-12: Portable Web Publication publication and outreach, F2F planning

See minutes online for a more detailed record of the discussions. (The headers below link into the relevant sections of the minutes.)

Portable Web Publication publication and outreach

Following the discussion last week the PWP Editor’s draft has been updated. Ivan Herman gave a status report; the participants unanimously decided to publish the document as a First Public Draft. The plan is to publish on the 15th of October.

There was a discussion on the outreach following the publication. It has been agreed that the outreach activities should not be huge (e.g., press release) and that a set of blogs and home page news at W3C and at IDPF should suffice. Some points of necessary emphasis in the outreach message came to the fore:

  • explaining the process, i.e., what is a WD, how to provide input, etc
  • what the relationship of the work around PWP is with the EPUB3.1 work at IDPF
  • background both for publishers (who may not know about W3C) and the Web community (who may not know about publishing)
  • position of W3C relative to the rest of the publishing community

Because this is the Frankfurt Book Fare week, it is probably better to set the dates for the outreach sometimes next week. There will be a regroup of volunteers about this by the end of the week

F2F planning

The agenda of the F2F meeting at the W3C TPAC meeting is shaping up. The group spent some time on working out some details, plan for some more meetings (if possible) and determine session chairs.
