ISSUE-177: Editorial changes often called "minor changes"


Editorial changes often called "minor changes"

Process Document
Raised by:
Daniel Glazman
Opened on:
There are many places where "editorial changes" are called "minor changes".

Only the latter is precisely defined by the document and all occurrences of "minor changes" link to "editorial changes". On another hand, the definition for editorial changes lists two kinds of changes: truly editorial changes, and non-editorial changes that are not substantive.

It's then proposed to replace all occurrences of "editorial change" by "minor change", fix the dfn element above, and fix all links targeting that dfn element.

Related notes:

This issue could be more complex than explained above. Editorial changes are not defined but used for instance for Edited Recommandations. We may need three classes of changes: editorial, minor and substantive.
