Hi all:

Regarding the challenge *Use cases, requirements, scenarios, and block
diagrams* once that that there is work in progress I seems to me fruitful
to let the Social Business Community Group to pick the work from the Social
Headlights and mature it.

> Terms and conditions (for social sites) might prevent this from happening
> (at least automatically).  This is something that W3C staff counsel should
> look at.  If we determine that this is not a problem, then this probably
> becomes a candidate topic for the fall workshop.
> *3. Use cases, requirements, scenarios, and block diagrams.*  We were
> unclear about the best way to proceed with this work.  It seems unlikely

> end date to the task force and much work remains to boil this down.  On the

> addition to the thread).  We discussed the following ideas to continue the
> work:
>    1. Give the Social Business CG "first right of refusal" to be the
>    place to continue the work.  On the one hand, there has already been
>    overlap of contribution.  So it is logical for a CG (which does not have
>    such a limited time) to pick up the task force work.  On the other hand,
>    the scope of the block diagram is broader than Social Business.
>    2. Spawn a new CG to focus on use case, requirements, scenarios, and
>    block diagrams for social networking overall.
>    3. Continue discussion on this mailing list
>    4. Continue in task force mode and see how far we get by July.
> My personal sense is that we should do (1), possibly leading to (2) - but
> we agreed on the call to poll the task force participants.  Please provide
> your input.
>  Given the scheduling issues (mentioned above), and the assignment of
