Hi,

I've developed a short XSLT [1] to compare the state of the glossary in
SpecGL with the generic QA Glossary [2]; the resulting report is
attached: while most of the reported issues consists in simply adding
the relevant definition in the central glossary, there are 2 issues that
probably needs more attention before SpecGL publication:

* Conformance is defined as "fulfillment by a product, process, systems,
or service of a specified set of requirements." in SpecGL, but as "The
ability of a product to meet all the requirements claimed to be
supported" in the central glossary; which one do we want to pick?

* Test Assertion is defined as "a statement of behavior, action, or
condition that can be measured or tested. It is derived from the
specification's requirements." while the central glossary adds "and
provides a normative foundation from which test cases can be built"; is
the difference intended?
