This page contains a template for the elaborated use cases, some related documentation, and a section where all contributors can add their actual use cases.
A template for the elaborated use cases is here: UDFR Use Case Template. For an example of (a first stab at) an actual use case description based on this template, have a look at this document: Search Web Interface Use Case
The template was adapted from the GDFR template, with the addition of an 'Issues' field. Please have a look at the comments below:

Should this result in excessively long identifiers we should think of something else ...

Looking at the GDFR template I'm not 100% sure what this is about exactly, and whether we need this at all. If anyone has any ideas on this please insert them here!
