Publishing WG Telco, 2019-07-29: planning after summer recess

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

After a brief summer recess the group concentrated on some planning, also following the discussions on which directions to follow for the Working Group.

The planning for the coming period involves:

  • Publishing the UCR as a new version of a Working Group Note (as decided on the last meeting before the recess)
  • Publishing the current WPUB document as a Working Group Note (which can then be picked up by the Publishing CG for further incubation)
  • Create a restricted version of the current WPUB document, tentatively entitled “Web Publication Manifest”, which contains the (JSON-LD) vocabulary specification only
  • Update the audiobook specification to refer to the Manifest document and also to include audio specific processing. Undecided yet whether this enlarged audiobook document would include the current lightweight packaging, or whether that would remain as its own document for now

The goal is to have these documents “publication ready” by TPAC; a detailed set of milestones should be proposed at the next meeting.
