Dear all, this is the updated version of the fourth proposal: All policy documents by RIPE NCC will be published in one canonical place which is freely accessible to the public. All other copies will be copied from this one canonical place. All PDPs and their versions should be archived, not matter if they are successful or not. A clear way to discern PDPs if were accepted eventually or not should be provided. An existing local copy should be easy to bring up to date with the current canonical version and to verify against local defects. All policy documents, their predecessors, and the PDPs leading to their existence will be archived and can easily be diffed on the RIPE NCC website. Said web system should allow successive policy documents to be diffed without the PDPs in between, as well. All lines of all policy proposals and PDPs should be trace-able to their first occurrence. Rationale and links to relevant discussions should be published along with the policy documents and PDPs. Historic versions should be imported in this system within one year after this proposal becomes policy. If the proposal "All PDP emails, documents and websites should come with unified diff" is accepted, all diffs will be generated from this system. A pony for Sander Again, if this proposal ends up using git, I am willing to help maintain this system for at least a year. Richard
