We can ask them (or their co-chairs), but that doesn't seem necessary to
me. We discussed in an earlier meeting, and this group asked the
question of the Web and Software Group after I raised this topic
originally. I also had a lengthy discussion about this very question
with Peter Korn, a member of the Web & Software Group. Peter's answer
was that it is not a programming question because it's not about what
the program does. Instead, it is about the description in words of what
the program does and how to operate it, i.e. the content of the
documentation. As this question is about the level of detail that
should be required in the content of the documentation, Peter said he
believed it belongs with documentation.
I've cc'd Peter, just in case I might have misinterpreted the
conversation in any way.

software programming issue? Sorry for not asking this sooner in the
