Just wondering how many of you use a document revision
history in your documents; and, if so, which edits do
you place in the history? Major changes in content?
Minor changes (a few words) in content? Changes in
the template or other non-content items (page numbers,
margins, and so on)?

document has been completed? In other words, at what
point would you go from 3 to 3.1, or 3.1 to 3.1.5?
