 /What is a directed graph?/
 
 Several systems take the form of a directed graph:
 
 - dependencies
 - workflow
 
+IntentMadeManifest *utilizes* directed graphs. A framework is provided
+along with instances to form a library:
 
+- VCS: git, hg, etc.
+- decorators: actions
 
+http://k0s.org/hg/WSGraph is built upon for interface.
 
 
 Potential Uses
 --------------
 
 * dependency curation:
   - DEPS: Dependency Extraction and Processing System;
     http://deps.alioth.debian.org/ ,
     http://vasks.debian.org/projects/deps/
   - Extraction of Attribute Dependency Graph from Database Applications
     http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/articleDetails.jsp?arnumber=6130680&contentType=Conference+Publications
   - MAKAO, reverse engineering build systems :
     http://mcis.polymtl.ca/~bram/makao/
 
 * workflow construction, execution, and curation:
-  - [TODO]
+  - edit+create+export workflow TTW
 
 * hybrid:  of course, since IRL
   `workflow = DAG; dependencies = DAG => ...` ,
   you can do some crazy things:
   - actions: a class with method dependencies noted by decorators
     (see actions.py)

 State Machines:
 
 Workflow == state machines, so an understanding from either
 perspective is the same apropos the other.
