I thought with CVS, there wouldn't be the risk of losing the edits,
but I can see your point -- if there's no formal split of the document
across people, an edit war would probably begin.

It would be better to hear from the accessibility folks, but your
change sounds great to me. I think that Steve Faulkner was also going
to get access to the repository, for accessibility edits. Not sure
though.

Doc procedures: So you duplicate the document, and make your changes.
Do you, then, need to link it within an email to this group so that
people can see the changes? What is the procedure followed to ensure
these documents are given their due consideration? Do we need to
formally submit them?

Thanks

Shelley
