RE: Information on Caribou

Hi Folks,


Thank you all for your very helpful suggestions. We’d be happy to create a requirements document for Caribou. I have a format that is loosely based on the IEEE 830 Software Requirements Specification, cut down and simplified to student size. I’ll have students complete this based existing documentation and on executing Caribou.


And of course, the next question is who in the community would be the logical person to look at the document and tell us where we went wrong? It would be helpful to have some feedback on the document both so that we could correct the document and also so that we don’t continue development based on an incorrect assumption.


The goal would be to get the kinks out of the documentation and then post to wherever the community would like to have it.

One thing I'd like to do is to really "kick the tires" so to speak on
Caribou. To have students find all the rough edges and report bugs. And then
fix some of them of course! :-) So I'm looking for direction as to how to
determine what the exact appearance and behavior of Caribou should be.

While I realize it would be a lot of work, if there isn't such a document, maybe the students could start it with their assumptions.



Yes, assumptions are the right starting points here :)
