The final version of the policy proposal could then be copied to the ripe-documents section. That is the basic goal of this proposal. All changes during a PDP process are simply one patch for every update. Once the PDP changing document 123 gets approved and results in 124, the final commit in the branch is a simple `git mv 123 124` and is then merged into master. > Hmmm. It might be much more than we need, and rsync might be enough for what we need, but I can also see some benefits now. I have noticed this particular proposal growing on people over time several times over the few months I bounced it around on IRC. Richard
