Subject: Re: [Fwd: Re: [office] Review of ODF 1.2 specification draft 1.2- chapters 6 and 7]


A reply to my own post! ;-)

I started entering the edits and then saw:

"Otherwise, the information is updated each time the file is edited, 
causing the fields to change value when the document is edited by a 
different author."

That sounds like one subsequent author is maintained but then that may 
simply be an OpenOffice detail that may be resolved differently elsewhere.

Is there any sense of other ODF implementations that do maintain 
information for more than one subsequent author?

Hope you are having a great day!
