    request: I(issno), W(inwork), L(language),
    C(country)
            Publication module
•   Defines publications„ content and structure
•   Sequences data modules by referencing
•   May appear at any level in the pub hierarchy
•   Can reference other publication modules
•   Enables work share in publication building
     Publication module (contd.)
• Provides IETP navigation structure
• Replaces LOAP instance(s) at top level(s)
          Commenting approach
•   Principle: As simple as possible
•   Avoid chaining up of comments
•   Max 2 responses (interim / final) possible
•   Attachments in various formats allowed
          Attribute value strategy
•   Attempt to decouple syntax and semantics
•   ”Numeric“ values vs fixed terms in English
•   Ability to provide language sensitivity
•   Exchange mechanism for project
    configuration files later: expandable
