-I viewed your tutorial and noticed that you has a Useme server. How do
you set this up? This was the same thing that I ran into with my capstone
project where I created a Project Management Eclipse Plugin that would
store employee tasks / documents (like requirements, design documents,
etc) within a database. The problem I had with this is that if an
independent user wants to use your software they have to setup this
database server and point to it. To get around this I was going to treat
each task as a file or each requirement as a file of which the user can
check into a code repository like CVS or Subversion. I notice that within
the proposal their is a diagram of the functional architecture where web
services is used and a backend database. This again I think could instead
be CVS, etc. where a person using ORMF wouldn't be dependent on setting up
a server.

-Your requirements specification is use case centric where my requirements
specification is based off of IEEE 1988 Format. Additionally, within my
requirements editor I have the capability of measuring estimated time to
do development process tasks vs. actuals. For example, I require a user
to estimate from a specific requirement how long it is going to take an
individual to do design documentation, implementation and testing. I then
compare the individuals estimates to the different theoretical models such
as Function Point Analysis and DeMarcos Model. Additionally, during the
development process I also get actuals from implementation, testing, etc.
I then can compare these values to the estimates which gives the project
manager an idea of how the project is doing. I would not expect this in
ORMF. Just informing you what I did within the Napkins Requirements
Editor. You can actually download the Napkins Requirements Editor to see
what I am talking about. It is located at te/

-This is more an FYI but there is a company that created an eclipse
plug-in for work items
( fasttrack) These
work items are checked into CVS or Subversion then. There is no server
dependency at all.

-I think that 'smart links' may be confusing initally. After I read
them and saw the demo they made more sense.

-When I presented my napkins requirements editor a couple of things
everyone said were required when writing requirements; spell checker, a
subscription service to subscribe to a requirement that might change and a
way to view the requirements document in pdf or word format. Note that my
napkins requirements editor has a spell checker and a way to extract the
document to pdf and view it as an html file. Also screen shots can be
taken and placed within the document. This is key for requirements that
effect a GUI.
