DOCUMENT TYPE: Living Technical Specification

A Document Succession Identifier (DSI) is designed for use within bibliographic references for the long-term retrieval of a document succession, a type of document that is correctable yet redistributable across multiple websites. This DSI specification works in conjunction with the Document Succession Git Layout (DSGL) specification, which is a storage format for document successions. A DSI can reference either an entire document succession or, when an edition number is included, specific document snapshots. This feature lets readers quickly access both the latest edition and earlier editions. This DSI specification does not define any specific format for document snapshots; however, an example is Baseprint document snapshots.
