Requirements (was Re: Role of SPARQL)

Hi Holger,

I think we need to resume working on requirements. We had a good start at 
the face to face meeting. We need to continue. We can keep polishing the 
user stories in parallel.

I know you think this is all too slow but standards making is never fast. 
It takes time to get everybody on the same page. It's much easier to 
develop a solution for yourself.

On the requirements we need to start building the list of requirements we 
agree on. I'd think that we could start with a wiki page, like we did with 
user stories but I don't know how to deal with Eric's data and the Dublin 
Core's. Eric?

Hi Arnaud,

out of curiosity, do you have some rough idea about when we will have 
sufficient user stories so that we can take the next steps?

To clarify, I'm not suggesting we specify our solution without reference 
to a technology. What I'm saying is that I don't know that we can say that 
the reference technology should be SPARQL without knowing what our 
solution might look like. Depending on the approach we choose something 
else than SPARQL might be more appropriate. Saying now that whatever we do 
has to be defined in SPARQL reduces our choices. 

In line with what Peter said, this seems premature.
