Hi Davide & Eric ... many thanks for your offer of help.

Later this evening (after I've got back from a run :-) ) I plan to review the use cases in the wiki to identify which are in a good state for transfer to the use case and requirements (UCR) doc. I'll provide my thoughts on that ASAP. Then we can each grab some to edit into the UCR doc.

OK ... working practices.

The source document is at github:w3C/csvw/use-cases-and-requirements/index.html

Because we're using Github pages, the main branch we're using is gh-pages.

My preference, at least initially, would be for you to branch gh-pages and send me pull requests? Are you ok with that?

Points to note:
* You'll see that we're using W3C Respec for the document, there's a user guide <http://www.w3.org/respec/guide.html> but I think it should be fairly self evident to follow the pattern of the use cases I've added already.
* I'm dumping the supporting files straight into the use-cases-and-requirements/ directory, so please make the file names unique :-)
* If you can help it, please try to avoid "prettifying" the html as we may adversely impact each other (difficult to merge).
* I am maintaining bi-directional links between use cases and requirements (Requires: and Motivation:) - please can you keep these up to date.
* Put new requirements in the "candidate requirements" section until we've approved them
* Please follow the pattern I've started for the use-case and requirement fragment identifiers; human readable please!

Finally, don't forget to add yourselves as EDITORS!

Many thanks, Jeremy
