Baseprint Document Successions

Data records of a Baseprint document succession are replicated across multiple repositories, such as GitHub and the Software Heritage Archive, for long-term preservation. These preserved data records, not nor any website, determine that an author controls the succession to the latest edition of a published Baseprint document.

A Baseprint document succession consists of document snapshots encoded in Baseprint Document Format (PDF). Each Baseprint snapshot can be identified by adding an edition number to a Document Succession Identifier (DSI).
