There is a general consensus that at some time there needs to be a substantial revision of the Critical Apparatus chapter and module. This is in order to bring it inline with modern electronic editorial theory and to enable various aspects which members of the TEI community desire. This tracker item isn't here to suggest what they are, but simple act as a reminder/focal-point for building a working group for considering this in detail.

    Agreed. An important issue to address as part of this will be the use of the <app> tagset to mark-up apparatus notes in editions that are not in any sense Lachmannian: e.g. for critical notes, etc.

    There are already some allowances for this in the schema now, but at the very least documentation needs to reflect this too.

    Agreed. At the end of the council's work on P5 the possibility of an alternate view of the issue was explicitly left open.

    I've just had a meeting with Hans Walter Gabler who wants to bring the electronic version of his 1984 edition of Ulysses more up to date in its markup. His is a synoptic partly genetic edition which traces the development of emendations from fair copy to printed text through many levels. It seems to me that in revising the Critical Apparatus chapter the needs of such editions should incorporated and that Ulysses is a good target use-case for such a revision.

    I record this here to remind us to look close at this in leading up to revising this chapter.

    Generally agreed that the problem is not well enough defined as yet. We should ask MS sig or someone else to define problems.
