Just to be sure we are all talking to the same points.
When a WG has a draft of a document - D1.0 it sends it out for ballot.
It then takes feedback/comments and makes D2.0
this continues until we make it to Sponsor ballot ...say D5.0 (for sake of this argument).
During the Sponsor ballot process there are several recircs
and lets say D9.0 makes it to RevCom.
This produces a Published-year document. (say Widget-2000).
When Widget-2000 got revised, it had several steps.
Widget-2000-d1.0 which was balloted in the WG
and several drafts created
Then it was sent to Sponsor ballot as Widget-D7.0
It gets published and is called Widget 2012.
Now the question is which documents should be available to the public
Which documents should be available to the members
and for how long.
As I understand from the thread:
The CD contains all the published version history.
Each WG has saved the all the interim drafts, but they are generally available only to the chair.
Many of the WG have some subset of the full set of documents available to the WG voters.
Some Individuals have an archive that is better than others.
The "superseded" moniker I believes goes with those versions of the specification that was made public and are then replaced (superseded) with a newer version.
Now you can see why Adrian may have called some of the versions obsolete, as once the recirc has happened, and sent to RevCom, they are obsolete in that there is a published (final) version of the standard.
So now which documents are we thinking should be saved?
All on the CD? or just the published ones?
Just thinking out loud.
