Hi Karen, Marcia, Michael (and everyone else!)

I've tried to re-structure our 'Temporary Questions and Notes (from use cases)' re-using (and adapting) Karen's categories:

The result is perhaps too detailed, as I want for now to keep the matter for the issues. But generally I found it a very useful exercise.



> Yes, Marcia, I think that your list of "temporary questions" is mostly what I am thinking of as a gap analysis. I would like to suggest that each cluster include a gap analysis derived from the use cases, and that in the end we should bring these together as part of our final report.
