Apologies for not being active on the list recently, due to a family bereavement.

As promised, here is the draft spec for generic XML change tracking that was developed for OpenDocument originally. Many of you may have followed links and seen it already, this version is a small update to include reference to an external representation. The goal would be to have bi-directional and loss-less transformation between three representations for the same info:
1. Regular XML markup (probably the normative form)
2. Processing instructions (so document is valid against its schema because all change tracking is in PIs)
3. External representation so change tracking is in another document

For those of you who would rather see it in action in a sandbox, you can do so here http://bit.ly/10lc3WQ

Hope you all have a good holiday over Easter.
