Wow, the silence on this has been deafening. Not one single reply, even offlist. Does nobody track revisions in their EAD, or is everybody but me lying on a beach somewhere, sipping a drink with a tiny umbrella in it?

Subject: Revision tracking
For those of you who track revisions to your EAD finding aid using <revisiondesc>, what guidelines do you follow as to when a change to the file qualifies as a "revision" ? For example, fixing a typo IMO doesn't qualify as a revision, whereas adding a bunch of new material obviously does. And then what about all the stuff in between, like updating a <persname> due to LCNAF changes?
