Re: SSN-XG Meeting Minutes 12-August-2009

In regards to the last 2 action items:  I have created a page at

to list the use cases that we think are important.  You will see  
instructions at the top of the list on how to edit this page,  
hopefully it's all self-explanatory.

If that's just too much work, you can email me your 1-line use case  
description, and I will update the page accordingly.

Wherever possible, it will help to reference source material for the  
use case, to provide more in-depth material. I have gone through all  
the material cited on the use cases page and pulled every use case  
that I could derive from those materials. (I omitted or refined some  
MMI use cases that I thought were unhelpful.)

Although I thought at first everyone should get one vote, that may be  
too rigid.  Since we can see who has voted, we can let this resolve  
itself organically. Everyone knows we have time constraints, so voting  
for 5 or 10 use cases is probably not sensible.  (Holger, feel free to  
set an arbitrary rule about how many votes and how they can be  

Hope this helps.
