Dear all,

In order to get the discussions about suggestions for extensions
more structured, we provide a template page now which shall be
used for submitting extension requests. We have chosen to group
the extensions around use cases since

* we believe that the extensions in this round should be clearly use 
case driven

* a use cases and requirements document is the first one this group is 
chartered to  deliver

* we think this makes it easy to group extension proposals along 
similar/overlapping use cases.

Especially the latter point means:
Before submitting a new use case, check whether one of the existing 
proposals already covers your extension and in such case rather extend
the existing use case by alternative subsections for different 
implementations than setting up a new page on wiki.

The template is available at:


You can just copy-paste that source in the edit window of your new wiki 
page; i.e., if you want to start a new use case, create a new page on 
the wiki, for instance simple entering


in your browser (where YourNewUseCase is a self-speaking title in 
CamelCase [1]). Then paste the template structure inside and adapt to 
your needs providing as much detail as possible.

An example use case page can be found at:


BTW: The [[Category:UseCase]] on top of the page ensures that all new 
wiki pages with use cases are in the same category UseCase, the whole 
category with links to all Use case items is then automatically
listed at:


For those who already submitted lists of use cases and extensions
on the wiki, we kindly request you to bring them into this structure
(Should only be a bit of copy-paste work)

We'd like to solicit submission of use cases

  *by next Telecon*

mainly (i.e. within a week, not by tomorrow).
Later suggestions are still possible, but in order to get a list of 
extensions ready for decision before the first Face-to-face and start 
discussing/present use cases in the group telecons we should proceed 
actively now! Details will be explained in tomorrows Telecon again.

Thanks for your help,

Axel & Lee
