Starting Date: 
2001-10-15
Working Group: 
4
Status: 
Open
Background: 

Even if the documentation of the CRM may be complete enough, a list of frequently asked questions is regarded helpful.

Current Proposal: 

All items that have been raised as an issue at any time to become part of the FAQ list, as well as questions raised in the meetings. The FAQ list will be open to specific submissions at any time.

Monterey 20/2/2002.

FORTH will update the list of FAQs. Also FORTH, IONION, SOUTHAMPTON and YORK will prepare short tutorials about CRM. Then they will present to CRM SIG in order to get the approval of CRM SIG.
