Sorry to be so off the cuff about this.  What I had in mind was the following:


  1. We follow our usual tracking process most of the time with changes shown using word tracking.
  2. Every once in a while we decide that enough changes have accumulated and decide to make a clean copy.  This is a revision number by itself that just takes a spec (say version 1.35) and checks in the same spec with all changes accepted (as version 1.36), stating in the row for 1.36 that this was a clean copy revision.  Which means the content was unchanged from 1.35.
  3. For each revision we have a new column that shows the clean copy revision that it started from.  Thus 1.37, 1.38 and 1.39 might all show 1.36 as the origin clean copy.


Is that better?

Yes, thanks.

Hi Satish,

I have no problem with doing the accept-all-changes now if you want to do it Alex.  A clean copy would be nice.  We have the history in the previous versions.  And we can make a note of that in the change log in the document for the clean version.

If we archive the copy with the changes tracked as a specific milestone
then we can create a new copy, right?  We can even create a separate new
clean copy sequence numbers log in the spec if we need to.

Sorry to be thick but, can you be more specific on the process above? 

On accepting changes, each version is archived separately in CVS but, we have been distributing copies with change tracking in, so that people can see the changes made. Now if we accept all changes that should be done on a version that the TC has seen on voted up on (and accepted etc.), so that change tracking is effective from that reference point. If we accept all changes at this point would it confuse people? as we changed things substantially since the last accepted version. Just wondering..
