Dear group members,

I have uploaded a new draft version of the requirements document, in 
which I have attempted to take into account all comments so far:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/emotion/XGR-requirements-20080513/

This document contains the following changes with respect to the 
previous version:

* Action tendencies

I have moved Action tendencies from the Optional to the Mandatory 
section, and reordered the numbering of Core 5 - Core 9 so that Action 
tendencies appear where they belong (i.e., below Appraisals).

I have also done a little bit of background reading in Frijda 1986 (it's 
on Google books, http://books.google.com/books?id=IrLXImwvDiEC). It 
appears that
1. there is a list of action tendencies (Table 2.1, p. 88);
2. action tendencies are accompanied with a *degree* of activation, i.e. 
we should represent them as scales.

* Scales more vague

I have removed all (I hope) instances of concrete intervals for scales, 
and limited description only to "unipolar" vs. "bipolar" scales where 
that is possible and appropriate. This gives us the necessary vagueness 
to discuss needs in detail with the spec. This discussion has obviously 
started already on the list.

* Corrected reference

The emotion dimensions section referred to "Roesch 2006" -- this was 
corrected to mean "Fontaine et al., 2007", and the correct reference was 
added to the reference section.


Please let me know in case I have not taken into account a comment that 
was agreed.

If I do not hear from the group otherwise by the end of this week, I 
will consider this version of the document accepted, and remove the 
"draft" from the title.

Thanks again for the feedback so far, and let the discussion continue!

Best wishes,
Marc
