discussion of how to organize requirements document
14:15:27 [ewallace]
bijan: I think that we should be going from features to the requirements
14:15:40 [ewallace]
bijan: its faster and more scoped
14:15:50 [vipul]
14:15:56 [alanr]
ack vipul
14:15:57 [ewallace]
bijan: its also more modulor

I don't think the requirements document *should* be for newbies to owl
14:17:12 [ewallace]
which list?
14:17:13 [bijan]
we have a primer
14:17:23 [vipul]
14:17:43 [bijan]
I also suggest we leave this to the editors
14:18:04 [ewallace]
alan: collect a list of features and other aspects of the design to drive writing
14:18:23 [ewallace]
bijan: we should go do it

christine: I prefer features to requirements also
14:21:07 [ewallace]

14:21:12 [bijan]
14:21:26 [alanr]
14:21:29 [vipul]
14:21:30 [ewallace]
christine: list all features with examples and more description
14:21:40 [ewallace]
... make clear motivations
14:22:38 [alanr]
14:22:42 [alanr]
ack bijan
14:23:24 [ewallace]
bijan: if we pile on the features at the start will make it hard to ever get done
14:23:29 [alanr]
ack vipul
14:23:40 [ewallace]
vipul: I agree with Bijan
14:23:59 [ewallace]
... the scope is to limit to OWL2
14:24:30 [bijan]
(But what he said he agreed with wasn't what I said :))

14:27:37 [vipul]
14:27:50 [alanr]
14:28:07 [ewallace]
... Are you interested in providing a detailed outline?

re evan: I think the SHROIQ heading is sucky too; so I'm not for the exact categories, but some similarness

14:43:38 [ewallace]
bijan: I think that incorporating lots and lots of details is probably too much
14:43:50 [alanr]
q+ alanr to talk about not domain specific requirements (e.g. implementor)
14:44:13 [ewallace]
I agree that we don't want to have complete coverage across all domains

The meta-requirements:
14:46:06 [bijan]
Usage of OWL, particularly the OWL DL species of OWL, has identified several constructs that are of considerable utility and that fit well within the representation philosophy of OWL DL. Advances in the theory of Description Logics have provided a basis for reasoning with constructs that are not part of OWL, or not part of OWL DL.
14:46:25 [ewallace]
14:46:27 [bijan]
For both these reasons, it was decided at the first OWL: Experiences and Directions workshop to design an extension to the OWL DL species of OWL. The extension is designed to provide simple extensions to OWL DL that
14:46:37 [alanr]
14:47:35 [alanr]
interoperability requirements?

alanr, you wanted to talk about not domain specific requirements (e.g. implementor)
14:47:39 [vipul]
14:47:44 [ewallace]
alan: is there any input other than implementer and domain specific giving requirements
14:48:00 [ewallace]
alan: such as general semantic web

Plus, the link could be far fetched

Proposal: Could Christine and Michel help us step through the OWLED?

bijan: this seems like a really massive task to be complete about it
14:52:38 [michel]
too much
14:52:41 [michel]
14:52:50 [vipul]
+1 to incomplete but useful and true
14:52:56 [ewallace]
alan: I think whatever we could pull up with a reasonable effort would be good

michel: how does this relate to the Primer which also has examples
15:03:45 [ewallace]
