No, the inclusion of "documentation source" was intentional. It is there largely to be consistent with EPL 1.0, which defines Contribution as:

"Contribution" means:

Yes, I had noticed the change to "documentation source" (draft) vs "documentation" (in v1.0) and wondered if the scope intention changed. I specifically wondered if you were limiting the scope to documentation comments included in the source code.

So your interpretation is not what we intended. Do you have any suggestions on a clearer way to include documentation in the definition? Is saying "documentation source" rather than "documentation" more confusing?

Not an answer to this question, but I'd note that with the file-based focus of the license scope, it is now much clearer/easier (if necessary) to simply say "these files are not part of the work".
