Martin Sarabura commented on OSLCCCM-29:

1.	Where is the shape for config#Configuration?
2.	The oslc_config:selections property references oslc_config:ChangeSetSelections which is not specified

Issue 29, https://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/browse/wsvn/oslc-ccm/trunk/specs/config-mgt/config-resources.html#changesets
This issue is resolved by introducing the concept of change sets and the oslc_config:overrides property, however the verbiage could use some tightening up – along with points 1 and 2 above.
The configuration defined by a change set thus identifies both the 'before' state (the base configuration that is overridden by this change set), …

Do you really mean prov:wasDerivedFrom here? Isn’t this oslc_config:overrides?
When a change set is based on a stream (the prov:wasDerivedFrom property on an instance of an oslc_config:ChangeSet…
Providers can avoid this lack of precision by ensuring either that all changes made to a stream are either captured….

> Our PTC tools have a usability feature that allows the end user to see the state of the affected resources prior to and after the requested changes have been implemented. This allows a reviewer to easily ascertain that the implemented changes are consistent with the request, even if other changes had been introduced by other change requests concurrently. The alternative approach - which is supported by the current spec - is to review every change in the list of change sets. This approach adds cognitive load if more than one change set was created and/or if the same resource is represented more than once in the change sets.
