Verifying AMD1 against ODF 1.1 (with COR1+COR2)

Hi Dennis

Am I right in thinking that currently the only versions of the WD04 drafts
that are available for public download are the PDF versions? I can only see
.odt versions for earlier drafts.

I'm looking at:

> Description
> From the Document Description property:
> This is a modification of the ODF 1.1 OASIS Standard showing mocked
> tracked-changes modifications in accordance with the corresponding
> ODF 1.1 Errata 01 Working Draft.
> The Errata items from ODF 1.1 Errata 01 are introduced in this text as
> simulated change tracking. The tracked-changes feature of the ODF
> document
> is not used. The appearance of change tracking is by editing of the
> text
> to have the appearance that tracked changes would have, if carried out
> using the style of ODF 1.1 Errata 01.
> Working Draft 04 reflects transposition of IS 26300:2006/COR1 (ODF 1.0
> Errata 01), COR2 (ODF 1.0 Errata 02), and IS 26300:2006/AMD1 changes in
> which additional ODF 1.1 Errata were detected. This WD will only be
> revised further only to correct errors in this transposition and for
> additional post-AMD1 Errata items identified for the completed ODF 1.1
> Errata 01.
> For further details, consult the latest ODF 1.1 Errata 01 Working Draft
> editions. Those will identify the version of these mock changed-tracked
> documents that correspond to them.
