Subject: Semantic backwards compatibility Re: [ubl] VS: Documentstatus

I would like to express much concern that there what I believe to be
a misunderstanding that a major release allows us to break *semantic*
backwards compatibility. We SHOULD NOT (rfc sense) break * semantic *
backwards compatibility, even in a major release. It is a major release
because we might break schema backwards compatibility (and even that
should be avoided). I think we realise that we are likely to have a few minor
compatibility problems where we HAVE to change things such as if required
to do so because of codelist changes but even there we should try to avoid
it if possible.

All the best

Hi stephen

There will be no information lost if it allways is in state original. My
opinion is that we shoul corect errors because this is a major release. I
would like people to yell if they have a need for it, otherwise UBL will be
a long list of legacy errors.

We'd need to keep this now for backwards compatibility
but the original decison was a TC one at a plenary (several years
ago in Montreal). There may be issues too with alignment with
EDIFACT, etc.

Hi stephen

What is the idea of putting documentStatus in recieptLine and despatchLine.
Should not document status be used only in the documents that can be
updated, such as the order docuements?
