A-2002-10-28-2: Action Item to Andrew Clean up language of Guideline 
1 2nd paragraph with Lynne.
	Due 11/4/02..

Lofton had combined language from Lynne and Andrew on cases and systems.

3.1 - Must include Table of contents.

Lofton - no matter how you divide up a document you need to provide 
an easy way to navigate
the document and find information.

Lynne - Can all these toc guildlines be combined into one.

David - There needs to be a way to navigate to conformance 
information with out having to
simply read the document.

A-2002-10-28-3: Action Item to Lynne to draft language on single TOC 
section rather than multiple as it is
now. Due 11/6/02

3.5 - what is a testable rule.

Should be resolved based on language else ware in the document.  See 
Lofton's mail to

Rule should be replaced with requirements as we have definition of 
'testable requirement'

Lofton suggested (in mail) contradict or redefine instead of clash.

6.2 - Does the rational really justify the checkpoint

Lofton - bigger issue is that guideline 6 has become catch all of 
checkpoints on conformance
that dont fit elsewhere.

Based on Mail discussion between Lofton and David.

David to take a look at Guideline 6 (checkpoint 2 and 3).

A-2002-10-28-4: Action Item to David to look at Guideline 6, work on 
language. Address triple @'s.

12.1/12.2 - How can an ICS be normative, how.

Was discussed last week. The way this currently reads, it could be 
interpreted to mean that the
normative ics is only possible ics.

should be re-written to state minimal requirements for ics or to make 
it normative to have one.

A-2002-10-28-5: Action Item - Mark - Spec much include reference to 
ICS or include language as to why it is not

14.1 - Test Assertions:
Will take too long...

1.3 - Make this statement stronger?

Directive to Dom. We all agree, Yes... but how?

2.2 - Clarify language on "which is not a requirement' Needs to be 
clarified or removed. It
may have an intended purpose but no one is positive what was meant.

Mark - pre announces his regrets for next week.
