Message-ID: <2E33960095B58E40A4D3345AB9F65EC106B145A6@win-msg-01.wingroup.windeploy.ntdev.microsoft.com>

After tremendous progress during the face-to-face meeting, we have a
candidate for our first published requirements draft. Please find this
candidate draft attached; it includes 50 accepted and 3 draft
requirements. Per the most recent teleconference, it includes a reworded
R001, a new R121 requirement, and a grammar pass over all accepted
requirements. Rejected requirements are hidden for clarity (but are
retained in the source).

Comments and/or discussion welcome. Please see instructions within the
document on the appropriate forums for discussion specific to this
document.

The WG made additional progress during the teleconference this week.
Please find attached an updated requirements draft (WSRQ0405.htm) that
accepts 2 requirements, rejects 4, and includes several wording changes.

This is the last requirements draft prior to the face-to-face WG meeting
next week.

The WG made some progress during the teleconference this week. Please
find attached an updated requirements draft that accepts 4 requirements,
rejects 10, and provides some minor rewording of issues in Section 4.7
InterfaceBindings. It also marks a proposal to simplify requirements in
Sections 4.5 Messages and Types and Section 4.9 Extensibility.

Your feedback is welcome; please note that the WG face-to-face meeting
is imminent.

Please find attached an updated requirements draft that includes revised
definitions and proposed simplifying requirements in Sections 4.6 and
4.7.

There is also one new, draft requirement (R112) about message meta data.


As you may know, the WG is planning a face-to-face meeting in early
April. Your feedback is always welcome, but it is particularly valuable
now as the WG prepares for that meeting.

Please find attached an updated requirements draft that includes the
recent definitions drafted by David Booth; these should help us all get
on the same page re: the wording and intent of remaining requirements.

Because we didn't discuss any requirements at the most recent
teleconference, there are no changes in the accepted / rejected
requirements. (And no new requirements either.)

Feedback welcome.

Pretty quiet on the list and some modest progress during the
teleconference. Please find attached an updated requirements draft that
accepts 3 requirements and rejects 7. (No new requirements!)

Feedback welcome.

Less input this week, but the WG made modest progress during the
teleconference. Please find attached an updated requirements draft that
accepts 5 requirements, rejects 6, and adds reworded DR109. It also
marks a proposal to simplify requirements in Section 3.2, and it adds
DR110 for a newly submitted requirement.

Feedback welcome.

Thank you again for your continued input. Please find attached an
updated requirements draft with several changes.

First, this draft notes that 5 MUST requirements have been accepted by
the working group; some of these have simplified and/or clarified
wording.

Second, this draft marks 4 requirements as duplicates of others and thus
not (separate) requirements.

Finally, this draft includes 7 new requirements from the community. Note
that for the sake of process, I made a guess at the priority of these
requirements.

Thanks again for your input.

Thank you all for your additional requirements, early feedback, and
clarification for the W3C Web Service Description Working Group (WG).
Please find attached an updated requirements draft with several changes.

First, it includes 17 new requirements. If you have any additional
requirements, the WG will be pleased to consider them on a case-by-case
basis.

Second, for the sake of process, I made an educated guess at the
priority of each requirement. Borrowing from RFC 2119, MUST requirements
are the highest priority, MAY are low, and SHOULD are somewhere in
between. (See the updated draft for specific language.) The WG will
begin discussing this prioritization at our next meeting. You'll note
that no requirement is yet marked MAY, though I expect that will change
soon. Your feedback on the relative priority of the requirements is most
welcome.

Thank you again for your input. I look forward to working with you all
to come up with a clear, focused requirements document that provides a
great foundation for the WG effort.

--Jeff
