WG Process

To tackle the issue at hand, I would like the group to follow this methodology:

  1. Document the current methodologies of how colors and texture “work” in IFC4.x
  2. Document criticism and issues of the current methodology
  3. Document Use Cases for colors and textures
  4. List possible solutions based on use cases, with details and pros/cons
  5. Rank possible solutions by effectiveness and preference
  6. Document final proposal for presentation to community and IFC5 Task Force

Ideally, each step will be its own Topic (I will start those) where the group replies in a focused manner. This will help us collect all the needed info and discussion in an open and easily reviewable manner.

I know we already have many thoughts and discussions on this issue already floating around. I will try to consolidate or link them in their appropriate Topics.
