If you are going to be defining these (or at least starting to suggest some definitions) then I will wait to see what they are. Oh, as managers are always willing to tell everyone - waiting is the wrong attitude. Honestly, there are a various operations on various components. If you wait, till all are on the table, there is little less to work together on here in the SC. Let me suggest the following: you pick up a scenario and perhaps think about questions on the operations I have already provided. I will work out operations for the six basic use cases Robin pointed out and if you have problems with coming up with operations for your scenario, I will happily assist you. Keep in mind the basic design idea that basic user events are being described by operations, while moving as much common knowledge (conventions) to the specification to focus on the mandatory variable part to be handled by the operation. > > When I created the change-tracking examples I didn't script anything I'm afraid, I worked manually. In fact some of the changes were made manually to make the examples simpler. I found that making the changes with an editor created changes all over the place (e.g the meta.xml) and this took attention away from the actual changes we wanted to demonstrate.
