I took over the role as an editor of the next ODF errata document and
would like to ask in my role of a WG6 participant if there is an urgent
need for page & line numbers in the OASIS errata document as an
additional reference aside of the section and paragraph reference.

The problems with page & line numbers are:

  1. There are two page & line numbers one for the OASIS and one for
     the ISO document
  2. Confusion occurred in the past if physical or written page number
     was meant
  3. It is a redundant reference, which causes annoying side work and
     bring no additional benefit to the user

If there is no protest, I would stick on the section/paragraph
references solely, but in contrary to the previous errata would add a
reference to the JIRA issue.

Best regards,
