Modifications of the Guidelines and information about said modifications

Post by Eric GRUSON » Tue Oct 03, 2017 9:31 am

Hi,

My question is very simple: is it possible to have a strutured version of the modification of the guidelines?
Indeed, every year, the Guidelines are updated (which is nice) but when we maintain a website refering to the guideline it is a nightmare. All the links are dead or point to wrong section of the guidelines.

It would be nice to have a XML, XLS, CSV, etc. that details the modifications.

For instance (this example is a pure invention):

Code: Select all

/guidelines/2016/e/g_vii_5_4.htm ==> /guidelines/2017/e/g_vii_6_4.htm
 
to show a change of the path of the section
and

Code: Select all

/guidelines/2016/e/g_vii_5_4.htm: MODIFIED
 
to show a modification of the content of the section

I need this feature a lot !

Thanks !!
