RE: Updating COMCIFS' approach to dictionaries


One possibility to reduce the likelihood of duplicate fields for the same items would be for changes in the non-COMCIFS dictionaries to be announced to COMCIFS, even though approval is not required.  The messages would purely be of the form of an FYI containing a summary of changes, sent each time a dictionary was released and updated in the central repository.  This would raise the likelihood that the wider community would be aware of improvements and new developments in disparate areas, whilst not imposing any administrative overhead.
