Thanks for your comments, Bill! It *is* untypical for TWs to put a fine
point on a manual's change history. I get that! For years my own
approach too has been light on the metadata. What approach do you
suggest, however, when you happen upon an environment that encourages
documentation of even the slightest change, from the weight of an i-dot
to the trajectory of a t-cross?

Do you fight or cave?

No. We *do* include a "what's new" to talk about changes to the
*product*... But the docs are a reflection of the product.
