Subject: Re: [tgf] Comment on TGF-Primer Public Review Draft 02 - Document formatting and section numbering

I see what happened. When I created the cover pages and created the public review draft, the numbering in the template overwrote the formatting in the original document and automatically numbered all the headings. Why I like working with word processors <sigh> 

Given that this is a function of how my template behaved, the next time I prepare a version for you, I will make my template behave properly and the document matches that approved by the TC without triggering a requirement for a new public review. In other words, I don't judge this to be a change to the CSD the TC approved. It is a purely mechanical issue of making the machine work right. 

Having said that, note that the TC Process has no exemption for 'purely formatting changes' at this time. It says any change to a work product requires a new public review. I make that point just to be clear that here the issue is not the trivial nature of the change - rather that the issue is a glitch in the publishing machinery.

The formatting and section numbering in the document published by OASIS is different from the document submitted for publication

Just a small reserve that should not lead to a further public review: spurious, incorrectly nested and ultimately misleading numbering has been added throughout the document.

Either the numbering system introduced (by whom?) should be consistent with the document’s intended structure; or should be removed. It was not in the deliverable approved by the TC.
