Subject: Re: [sarif] Re: Research on keyword usage


One thing to keep in mind is that capitalization is irrelevant to ISO, so differently-capitalized instances of the same word all mean the same thing in the ISO context.

     I think there is some confusion here:

     Yes, I will, but I think you mean "ISO readiness."

 3. *SARIF TC*: I propose to leave the existing wording in the spec as
    is. The Terminology section states explicitly that capitalized SHALL
    and MUST have their RFC 2119/8174 meanings, and the spec does indeed
    use those keywords as defined in RFC 2119. I think the
    capitalization is sufficient to alert both native non-native English
    speaking to the special meaning of those terms. And if we were going
    to standardize on one or the other, ISO conformance would have us
    use SHOULD throughout.

     I think you mean "shall" instead of "should" in the last sentence.

 4. *David*: Would you please add an agenda item for the next TC meeting
    to allow discussion of #3? I will move that the wording be
    maintained, and that will give anybody the opportunity to speak in
    debate on that point.

     Just to make sure I understand this, do you mean this issue?
