This W3C Working Draft specifies the behavior expected of a repository for device descriptions. The scope of the requirements covers the retrieval of device descriptions from such a repository; and any API requirements needed to support such behaviours.

This document forms one of the deliverables of the W3C Mobile Web Initiative Device Description Working Group. The requirements in this document are derived from the listed use-cases as well as information in the Device Description Landscape DDLAND and Device Description Ecosystem DDECO documents.
