The question is... is the simple task we have here doing more harm than good? Do we leave it and just let people use it caveat emptor?

I'm leaning towards killing it because it doesn't encompass the nuance needed to leverage offline properly. Most of the rest of what we do here ends up with a best practice outcome. That is not necessarily the case with this task.


Agreed. I think we should kill it.

The appcache generation task is one of remaining task to implement in h5bp/node-build-script, I wonder if I should still try to implement the task or follow what get decided here.

Yep, we should get rid of it and not bother including it in the node build script either.

  Fixes #73. Surprised we didn't see this as an issue before. All better now.
  Fixed up -clean dependency. There is no longer any clean dependency :) Fixes #69. -clean now must be run manually. This needs documentation for the cases where people have been expecting clean every time.
