Hi Marc!

Although having some very experienced community members here, who are
able to come up with "requirements" that help to work on the web
infrastructure - let's quote one of the most famous people (in Germany)
working in the requirements development domain ... the term "users"
refers to us, the community, using the site.

"User's don't give requirements. They provide information".

If you ask for requirements, you might end up in getting answers that
lead to the same design like it is available today. Only few people
might come up with suggestions what might be better ... Thus, from the
"requirements engineering point-of-view", it might be better to (also)
ask for the usual tasks people do. Usually, this "cognitive
walk-through" enables people to state what they are comfortable with -
and what's less desired.

If I remember correctly, Thorsten already started to explain how graphic
requests and selection might work. I referred to the pages where we
collected ideas concerning "brainstorming" (the idea collection Michael
talked about in another thread). Maybe this can already be a starting
point ...

However, thanks for the structured approach. It already feels great to
see that!

Needed:  Please feel free to add any individual team requirements for 
the final Drupal based website. All requirements should be

control system". We care about detailed requirements here rather than 
proposed solutions.
