Subject: RE: specification schema meeting minutes.
Please correct the following statement from the minutes: >Bob described the negotiation pattern and its sequence of >flip-flopping' of roles, seller first being reuestor, then being responder My point was rather the opposite: the negotiation pattern keeps the same two roles (for example buyer and seller) but flip-flops the requesting and responding activities between the two roles in successive transactions, first the buyer performing the requesting activity in an "Offer" transaction, then the seller performing the requesting activity in a "Counteroffer" transaction. The two parties maintain the same two roles, buyer and seller, throughout. The point was about the necessary difference between role and activity. -Bob Haugen
