Subject: RE: [soa-rm-ra] quick thought on versioning and description

The problem with a single indicator is that we cannot provide 1:M indication - a change in the log may be irrelevant to several consumers.
If the changes are under the agreement (contract), the consumer should not care about them, right?
We can recommend, I think, having an archive of the service description versions and the changes in the description might be viewed from there.
I still think that a rule-based version control (does not matter how many version positions the implementation prefers) is the safe way of addressing multi-version compatibility.
Thank you,
- Michael

Subject: [soa-rm-ra] quick thought on versioning and description

Would it make sense to add a change log to description where the service provider would list changes that we decide do not constitute the need to update the service version?  Would the version number of the service contain an extra field (thinking of this as an extension to Michael's paper) that indicated a log change but not really anything else?

Not sure where I'd go with this but wanted to capture the thought before it disappeared.
