respec.js for other kinds of documents

William Waites-2
Hello, I've been looking at respec.js as part of some work with the
RDF-WG and also with an eye to using it as a documentation tool for my
one of own projects. Would a patch be accepted that introduced a new
specStatus of "other" that basically behaves like "unofficial" except
that the "Status of This Document" defaults to empty (since the boiler
plate of being for a potential specification isn't really applicable
for, e.g. a software manual)?

Cheers,
-w

Yes, that would be perfectly fine. That being said, if you want to handle different types of documents with different requirements you might wish to check out ReSpec v2. The docs are very sparse but 98% of the stuff works just like v1. One big addition though is that everything's a plugin so you can add your own document types as you please (there's an example of doing just that for the "Robineko Reports" document style in the repository).
