I am getting to the point where I can start work on Bugoon.

I first want to sort out the basic plan of the software, functionality, data
model etc.

This ought to happen in an 'ideal' way, as pointed out by Ricardo Rocha :

Reading this makes me think that Ricardo has said everything that needs to be
said, I just don't know what all of it means ;-)

Can anyone suggest some good reading I can do to get up to speed on this?

If this is indeed going to be a worthwhile "testbed for a dynamic XML
development methodology" we gotta do it right, and I will need some help at this
stage (plus probably most of the others :)

Is there anyone with the time and knowledge of this stuff who can help?
