ePub its an open file format used for e-book readers and other devices.
I think we need to offer the issues in that format since PDF is a format
for printing and not for reading in electronic devices.

The PDF layout used in CSPP it's good for printing but really bad for
screen reading. That's why we should provide ePub version or at leat,
the OpenDocument version (that can be easily converted to ePub). The
CSPP's PDF also lacks of important metadata information, like keywords.

I get that, but I don't see any reason to have the reviews of each
article published as PDF files. Why not to include them in an article's
subpage called "Reviews"?
Eventually, we could add a "export to pdf" feature, but I think that the
contents should be available in HTML as the first option.
