Changes to CEB should not be a continuous process. Changes need to happen slow enough and in meaningful enoug chunks that someone other than the author can keep up. I think this means digests of the changes, digests which are readable in their own right--not mechanical diffs--should both detail *and* summarize for those who recently read the old copy. Refereing might dove tail nicely with keeping the whole thing stable enough to be usable. -kb, a Kent with a thick enough protective coating of ignorance to avoid most of the work... -- Kent Borg +1 (617) 776-6899 email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Proud to claim 28:15 hours of TV viewing so far in 1994!
