Dear Gary,

Thanks for your comments on the Last Call version of the QA Framework:
Specification Guidelines[0] - 22 November 2004

After two weeks from now (on May 18, 2005), the lack of answer will  
be considered as if you had accepted the comment.

Original comment (issue 1059 [1]):

Thank you for your comment, which the QA Working Group has accepted.  
Rather than attempting to create our own definition of  
"specification" we have decided to use the definition provided by ISO  
Guide 2-4 [2]:

"The term specification is used as defined in ISO Guide 2-4 [ISO- 
GUIDE] as meaning a document that prescribes requirements to be  
fulfilled by a product, process or service."
