Help:How to Request a Change in the SEBoK Architecture
The baseline file structure was created in April 2011 after BKCASE Workshop VI.
The article structure can be found at SEBoK Table of Contents.
Configuration Management Process
The CM form (below) is to be used if you would like to request that a change be made to the article structure of the SEBoK wiki (www.bkcasewiki.org). This may entail additions, deletions, or renaming of an article.
The configuration management process is:
- Agreement of need for change by your part team lead.
- Completion of the CM Form (Click here to download).
- Submission of the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please save form with your initials before submitting.)
- Submissions will be forwarded to the CM Board. The CM Board has 48 hours to suggest alternatives or veto the decision; otherwise, after 48 hours, the submission will be approved.
There is one exception to this process: if the request is simply to correct a typographical error, such as a misspelling, in an article title, the CM Board will not need to approve the change. However, the rest of the process must be followed.
When changes are approved, they will be made within 24 hours by the wiki team. The author team will be notified of the changes when they are complete.
The CM form must be completed in order for changes to be made. The form is based in MS Word and should be filled out completely before submission. Please save the form with your initials in the file name before submitting.
The form can be downloaded here.
