Hi Emily, Ann, Mike, Tom, and David,

Nice work on the Document Stewardship and Repository write ups (IMO).   (Thank you for the very clear writing (overall) as well as the very good thoughts.)

I have one small question/issue. Maybe it's nitpicky, but given the overall clarity of the doc, I thought you'd want to know.  (I don't have a way to log in (that I know of), so I'm going to put it here.)

On page 6 of the Stewardship doc, it wasn't clear to me what an "author's Work History" referred to.  Do you mean the "work history" on the doc in the repository? Do you mean bio information for the author?    I would think the former, but the phrase has more connotations of the latter to me....

I see that later you use the phrase "Work History" to mean prior versions of a document (it seems). 

I wonder if it means something in addition.   In any case, it would be helpful to have this apparent term of art defined.  (Also, I would think that "Work History" is a property of the doc and not the author (especially since there could be multiple authors.))


That's it!

I look forward to having the Consent team's docs in the Repository....

My best,
Marlena, Lead Architect for Consent-informed Attribute Release (CAR) project
