                    Digital Product Life Cycle Model
         draft-algermissen-digital-product-life-cycle-model-00

Abstract

   This specification defines an abstract model for Digital Products and
   their relationships with each other in order to establish a basic
   abstraction on which the lifecycle of Digital Products and
   collaborations around them can be expressed.  In addition, this
   specification defines a number of message formats and hypermedia
   controls, to enable the creation of tools and application in the
   space of Digital Product Life Cycle Management.

1.  Introduction

   A wide variety of applications exists that support the journey of
   developers and other collaborators around the lifecycle of digital
   products.

   The aim of this specification is to facilitate integration options
   between such tools and applications by providing a common abstraction
   and coordination protocols.

   The abstract model differentiates between the notion of a Digital
   Product and any system or infrastructure configurations and
   installations created to facilitate collaboration around such digital
   products.  A Digital Product in itself is purely abstract, primarily
   acting as a nexus for accountability and collaboration.

   Associated with Digital Products is a life cycle model that provides
   an abstraction of the individual phases in which a Digital Product
   lives to actually produce value.  Collaboration of various actors is
   also logically organised on the basis of these phases.

   Collaboration and value creation only becomes possible if
   corresponding tooling or infrastructure is provided beyond the
