Agile methodologies are gaining popularity quickly, receiving increasing support from the software development community. Current requirements engineering practices have addressed traceability approaches for well defined phase-driven development models. Echo is a tool-based approach that provides for the implicit recording and management of relationships between conversations about requirements, specifications, and subsequent design decisions.
