The W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) Device Description Working Group
(DDWG) [1] is pleased to announce the publication of the Device
Description Repository Requirements, version 1.0. [2]

This document outlines the technical requirements of a Device
Description Repository that will serve to provide information about
Web-enabled devices so that content may be adapted for these devices.

The document was edited by David Sanders of Vodafone with significant
contributions from the DDWG members.

The group will now turn its attention to design and implementation
issues, and encourages all interested parties to send feedback relating
to this document (and any other DDWG document) via this list.

Abstract:
===========================
This W3C Working Draft specifies the requirements for a logical
reference repository for device descriptions. This document does not
specify a definitive list of device descriptions rather it specifies
requirements not only on the reference device descriptions repository
itself but also on the provision and management of device descriptions,
and the discovery and access to the repository and its device
descriptions.

This document forms one of three W3C notes within the scope of the W3C
Mobile Web Initiative, Device Description Working Group (DDWG). The
requirements in this document are not only derived from the described
use-cases but also build on the information described in the DDWG
Landscape and Ecosystem documents.
===========================


On behalf of DDWG,
Rotan Hanrahan (Chair)
