Publishing WG Telco, 2017-11-20: Entry Page, FPWD

See minutes online for a more detailed record of the discussions.

Entry Page

There were lots of discussions last week on the exact details on the entry page (formerly “landing page”) and what it would contain. The discussion took place on the Github issue #103. The call picked up some of the issues, and the group get to an agreement on some consensus points. This is in line with the PR #101 which, essentially, said that the entry page, ie, the result of dereferencing the WP’s address:

  • MUST be an HTML document
  • MUST include a link to the manifest
  • SHOULD be a publication resource

It was also agreed on the call that the term “entry page” is not really good either, but there was no discussion on the call for providing an alternative.


The goal is to publish three documents (Web Publications, Locators, and PWP) before the end of the year. For that to happen it would be good to have a version to vote on at our next call, to allow for the one week consensus period and then the subsequent administration. (The publication moratorium begins on the 13th of December.)
