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 1060 [1]):

Thank you for your comment, which the QA Working Group has accepted.  
The notion of umbrella spec has been removed from SpecGL, moved to  
the Variability in Specifications document [2], and alluded to in the  
Scope and Goals section of SpecGL [3]. The relevant section now reads:

"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. Specifications can be  
defined in one document or as a coherent set of several documents  
@@link to VIS for Umbrella@@, and can import requirements of other  
specifications with normative references." [3]
