I am not so happy also, but maybe not for the same reason:

please have a look at the history and see whether your changes were properly recorded:

When I was doing edits, I was careful about always working live in my browser, and doing very regular saves. There's just no way I could have missed your changes, and undone them. Worst case, had we been working together on that doc, I might have lost mine...
In fact, when I do the diff between your latest submitted version from last week and my latest changes (which include some by Jodi and Jeff), I don't see much dramatic differences, and not the ones that you've mentioned (led/lead, for instance):

And there's no way I could have undone a change so that it is not displayed. The only change I've undone (as per the wiki process) is one by Jodi, after we discussed them on the list. And even that is visible in the history!

I could tell the same story for the use case document. Here's the diff between my last changes and your last ones:
(and the history is at
I started editing 3 days after you, so there's no way we could have worked on the same document at the same time.

Also, though I've change more stuff than on Appendix A, I'm sure not many of my changes might have reverted yours. To tell the truth, I was a bit puzzled by the fact there were so many uncapitalized "linked data" left...

So I'm afraid the wiki just forgot changes, which would be possible, given the big problems that were on that wiki last week. And THIS makes me unhappy.


> Well, it WAS done, but unfortunately more edits were done after Jodi and I finished and some will need to be re-done as they have introduced actual errors, so I will be re-editing this section and I beg you NOT to do any editing on this without chatting with Jodi or I.
> Unfortunately, that's not my biggest problem. There have also been edits done on the large section on Use Cases that Daniel and I have been working on. These edits are interspersed with my own, and between mine and Daniel's, and I just spent an hour or more looking at a large number of diffs. I will finish editing the sections that Daniel has completed, as agreed, but I do not have time to re-edit the entire document. If someone else has time to read it over, the report would be better for that.
> This is costing me many hours of time, and, no, I AM NOT HAPPY about it. I thought we had a process that would protect us from these kinds of cross-edits.
