DOCUMENT TYPE: Living Technical Specification

A document succession is a distributed, correctable document that preserves document snapshots as editions, which can be individually referenced. The Document Succession Git Layout (DSGL) is a format for storing document successions within a Git object store. DSGL bridges two related formats: the textual representation of Document Succession Identifiers (DSI) and the storage format for document snapshots. An example of a snapshot format is the format for Baseprint document snapshots; however, this specification does not define any specific format for document snapshots.
