Merger Proposal[edit]

It has been suggested that this page be merged with Software requirements specification (SRS). Since "software requirements" is the broader term, it would seem sensible to merge SRS into this page. Paul Ralph (Lancaster University) (talk) 16:28, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree with Paulralph on this, SRS should be merged into "Software Requirements". I volunteer to do it :). Lwoodyiii (talk) 19:24, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

I agree that "Software Requirements" and "Software Requirements Specifications" should be merged. They are both discussing the same topic. Blamdarot (talk) 21:23, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

I agree. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.109.254.19 (talk) 10:51, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

There is a very significant overlap between these pages and neither is complete. There is a lot more to software requirements than the IEEE standard. For sure they should be merged. Iansommerville (talk) 15:28, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

I have long been a user of wikipedia but never posted before. I need to disagree with this merger proposal. I've been in the software development industry for 20 years so I do have some background in this area. I see two articles here because the software document is not the software requirement. The "parent" article is "software requirements". This article discusses the general topic and introduces the components of producing a set of software requirements. This topic should be expanded and serve as introduction to the whole topic. Below this parent it makes sense to have child articles, one of which is a discussion about how to write the requirements document. This sub-topic has sufficient use on its own and provides a focal point for any discussion about ways to structure and write a document. Bryan.gilbert (talk) 13:42, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Disagree. I landed on this page when I googled for "Software Requirement Specification" which I learn is quite a known and significant document. Had this content been merged into Software requirements, I wouldn't have got that it does talk about SRS. It is possible that I am missing something. Prashant Serai (talk) 10:55, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Disagree. For the same reasons as above: a SRS is a document that contains software requirements. It's more a part-of relationship than is-a. Nevertheless, there should be links to each other. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.18.5.246 (talk) 08:02, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
