Subject: Updates to specs, revision bars


There were some concerns regarding spec revisions and naming that was used for the bindings specs when working on the RFC2119 resolution.  I understand that versions of the specs that contain proposed resolutions should not be named -cd01-revN.doc, but rather that a separately named document should be used to work on the resolution, which is then added to a revision of the spec document once resolved.

The problem that we now have is that we have gone through multiple revisions as we sorted out the various specs, with changes accepted in between, so that the latest revisions of the JCA and WS specs, at least, don't have all changes since the last CD marked with revision bars.

I'd like to get some feedback from the TC on how we proceed from here.

Is the expectation that between CD versions, the changes in the -revN documents mount up, and only get accepted when we move to the next CD, or is it OK to accept changes from revN to revN+1 ? ("accept changes" in the Microsoft word sense, rather than any TC sense).

If it is the latter, then we are OK to carry on from where we are.
If the former, then we have to do one of the following:

A) fix up the latest spec documents so that they show all changes since cd01.
B) accept the latest spec documents as CD02, and use that as the base for applying further revisions.
C) understand that when we do get to CD02, some of the changes made for RFC2119 statements will not be marked with revision bars.
