Please refer to the updated Requirements document:


All of the issues we have discussed both on the prior teleconferences and
in Shadi's note below have, I believe, been addressed and incorporated into
this latest update. These primarily include:
- rewrite of the status section
- removal of most <acronym> elements except as directed in minutes from
previous call (this includes the copyright)
- added references in text and references appendix and updated TOC
 incorporated changes discussed for D02, D07, and F04

Please let me know if you have any concerns or comments.

Hi Mike,

Please find my responses inline:

Yes, will fix these during publication preparation.

No. This entire section needs to be reworked for each publication. That
paragraph should explain the current status of *this* document, and
explain what is expected from the reader. The other paragraphs in this
section are all boilerplates.

Requirement "D02" and all requirements in the requirements document do
not apply to the requirements document itself but to EARL 1.0. Since it
*is* a full-blown specification on REC-track, it needs this requirement.

Right. But looks good otherwise, thanks for moving it forward.
