Dear Mike, edgeR uses the term 'offset' in the same way that has been standard for generalized linear models since Nelder and Wedderburn's original paper in 1972. It agrees with the meaning in the glm() function and in thousands of books and articles on glms. It corresponds to your first formula for a glm with a log-link. One should be very careful about using established technical terms in a way that conflicts with the established definition.

Mike has raised a couple of important issues wrt. using the output from cqn as offsets in a GLM, for example by using edgeR. We are looking into this, and I'll make a follow up post when we have looked at this in detail.
