Dear RIF-WGers,

David and I have come up with 7 general use case categories.  The
categories are listed below in alphabetical order and under each title
we list (in alphabetical order) the submitted use-cases that we see as
falling in that category. Submitted use-cases may fall in more than one
category.  This is, of course, a tentative and not necessarily complete
or optimal categorization, but we feel that it is a pretty good start.

What we would like to do is to "synthesize," as much as possible, the
submitted use-cases in each category into one unified narrative and
list of possible requirements.  In other words, fill out a use-case
template for each of the 7 general categories based on the subsumed
submitted use-cases.  

Since time is short we would like to ask for volunteers to work on each
category.

(After the 7 categories below, we list submitted use-cases that we have
not been able to classify so far and those whose description on the
WIKI were incomplete.)

Allen & David
