Iím personally fine using only the built-in history and changes mechanisms that Giuseppe describes below, because:
1. Itís consistent across all W3C wikis.
2. Itís automatic - no chance of forgetting to list a change.
3. Itís less work.
4. It meets my personal needs.

However, I have no objection if the group wants to add a changes section.

What do people think about adding  a ďChangesĒ section to the use case template where editors can jot a Date + who + explanation of the change they did.     That will allow readers to know there was at least a change , who did it and when.

For example:


  *   3/11/15 Ė glenn deen Ė added Author field to use case template

If there arenít objections, Iíll add this to our template.

Use case template

   NiloM: Suggests changes to the use case template.

   <kaz> [9]Use Case wiki

      [9] https://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/GGIE_TF/UseCases

   kaz: wiki system does have feature to track changes.
   ... perhaps we can assign a specific author and reviewer to
   each use case.

   <inserted> [ fyi, the old use case template of the main IG had
   fields on "submitter" and "reviewer":

   glenndeen: will think about the best way to manage updates to
   wiki. Suggests we have a discussion on the mailing list.

   kaz: maybe users can use different colors when making edits.

   <NiloM> color is better than nothing. At least it would show
   what changed.

Not sure if the built in wiki features are useful enough, but just for the record:

- there is a "view history" section in each wiki page (reachable via a top-right tab/button) where one can select two versions of the page an see the changes.

- logged in people can also subscribe to changes, so each time the document changes you get an email.

- changes can also be shared on the list with a link like this
