> Is there any sort of standard for numbering versions of the docs, if the
product is not changing?


I just now got out of a meeting where we discussed this very issue. In
generally, our document numbering is separate from our product versions. If
I had to write a new document for a product that was already released, I
would call it "Version B." Other choices are "Version 1.1" or "Version

This is something that you need to hash out with the people who are driving
this change. Propose a standard, put it in writing, then get agreement from
the management.
