Subject: Re: [wsbpel-reqts] [bpel-rqmts[ Jordan 8/29/2003: Issues Categories forDiscussion Boundaries

I didn't get a chance to respond on Friday - thanks for your work on this.   I think we're in agreement that functional categorization is the way to go.  As we discussed a couple weeks ago, any attempt to set priorities is likely to be too subjective and lead to unproductive controversy.  The priorities will become evident by virtue of the amount of effort the TC is willing to expend on any given issue.

I expect we (John and I with the help of the issues coordination subgroup) will use the input on categories for organizing agendas.   You use the term "bound"  below which can imply setting constraints on bringing up issues that are viewed as related in a way not reflected in your document.   I'm concerned that if we try to impose that much rigor around categories it will lead the TC down a path of working to refine the categorization rather than working on resolving the issues.   Perhaps I'm being too particular about the language here, but I would prefer to use a term like "orient" or "organize" and avoid presenting the categorization as normative.  

I've put categorization on the agenda for tomorrow - you may want to post the document to the full group.

In Wednesday's call we discussed trying to put the issues in similar
functional buckets for discussion, not particularly categorization by
priority. I think several of the priorities by function are apparent,
but (as we discussed) this is for the TC to decide.

Here is a broad categorization to discuss issues.  They fall pretty
nicely except we may need to decompose correlation further, and also
discuss it understanding clear definitions for conversation, transaction
and business transaction.  I anticipate these will be discussed and the
recognition made during the face-to-face in September.

I would like to propose these be considered by the TC to bound
discussions. Whether or not the proposals or the volunteers champions
are combined, that's will be up to this SC and the TC itself.

I am formally asking we bring this up on Wednesday and consider
discussing the issues in this fashion in the F2F.

Thank you.
