  Use cases and requirements for V.next


   <scribe> ScribeNick: ht

   MM: Alex M's draft from 4/06
   ... Some of the content is moved around abit
   ... Some stuff from the Wiki moved in to the introduction
   ... Added annotation to each use-case/req'd to identify their state
   ... So that we can do an audit

   NW: Two comments
   ... 1) Now that we have a document, it should be the location of record
   for Vnext use cases and req'ts

   JF: Should we in fact close off the wiki?

   NW: Not necessary, although put something at the top pointing to this
   doc't ASAP

   JF: I was worried about synchronisation

   NW: 2) There are use cases which we have satisfied, and those should not
   show up
   ... Either via annotation and stylesheet or by just deleting

   AM: Do we see this as a Vnext-only requirements doc't, or an update to the
   old one?

   NW: Could go either way

   AM: I'd like to at least clean up, or even get rid of, some of the early
   use cases, e.g. from me
   ... At very least don't make sense 'as is'

   NW: We could be _really_ good and include XProc pipelines that show how we
   satisfied the old ones
   ... What I really care about is distinguishing old from new, so we see
   what we really have to work on

   AM: I completely agree

   MM: Yes, the old stuff is there so we can do the audit

   AM: Is this all of the old ones?

   MM: Yes -- I started from the old source to do this, didn't remove

   JF: I think doing a case-by-case audit is a good idea

   NW: On telcon, or offline?

   <alexmilowski> Hmmâ*¦ having trouble with T-mobile â*¦ no signal at
   all. :(

   MM: I anticipated doing it offline
   ... I was hoping AM would make a pass

   HST: Note that AM has lost audio

   MM: I'll speak to him later

   NW: Right, so would everyone please have a go at reviewing the use cases,
   and if appropriate drafting an XProc snippets

   AM: I will have a look when I can, and work with MM
   ... What I'm missing is what we've agreed about the primary goals of Vnext

   <scribe> ACTION: NW to find the discussion of goals in the minutes and
   distill some prose for use in the Reqts Doc [recorded in

   AM: Do we want to divy up the use cases


   NW: My thought was that we would give people a week to read this, and then
   decide on tactics

   AM: We did go over the req't doc for V1 -- did the outcome of that review
   turn up in the test suite?

   NW: In some cases, but there is no metadata which records that fact

   JF: Add tests to the test suite as we articulate new req'ts?

   AM: Could be difficult, e.g. for DB access

   JF: Test could be informal

   AM: I'd think the new req'ts docs is the right place for informal/prose
   test cases
   ... Indeed they are important, and need to be in the doc

   NW: So yes, that argues for leaving the old ones in, as long as their
   state (solved, won't fix, etc.) is easily evident

   AM: What happened with our charter renewal?

   NW: LQ has made a draft, I've reviewed it, it started up the chain, we
   will get it again

   AM: Hiccup?

   NW: Yes, but resolved -- we will be rechartered to do a VNext if the
   req'ts review says we need one

Summary of Action Items

   [NEW] ACTION: NW to find the discussion of goals in the minutes and
   distill some prose for use in the Reqts Doc [recorded in
