Can you elaborate on what you mean by “undetected build failures”?

I was wrong about the "undetected build failures" causing the EE 8 Specs to not be correct.  Near the end of the EE 9 Platform TCK development, we had noticed that the Platform TCK documentation had been incorrect for some time but there were no build failures during the TCK build.  Alwin Joseph was able to fix the documentation errors on the weekend of when we wanted to freeze TCK changes, which was good but still leaves unresolved that there can be syntax errors in the asciidoc sources that cause the html/pdf output to be incomplete.


Except for the platform spec, all other EE 8 Specs had placeholder documents published at that point in time.


Last time I checked about changing existing specification documents it requires to go through a full release review ballot.

Thanks for explaining this!

If someone was to step up to fix the various broken SPEC documents for various projects for EE9, would we be able to update the various pages?


I am more interested in an answer for correcting EE 8 SPEC docs but would be good to have an answer for EE 9 also.



For example, looks like there were undetected build failures generating the html from asciidoc source. 


If we would accept changes via a topic branch, we could probably fix this with the community.
