Proposal: Clarification

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

In the Rule “[COR] Corrections”, replace

It contains an explanation of one or more errors in the Original.

with

It contains an explanation of all the errors corrected from the Original.

The paragraph “Students should not vote FOR a Correction unless it proposes substantially the same changes as the Original and it fixes the errors described.” potentially makes errors corrected but not described to be regarded as “inappropriate” changes, so having it explicit should make it less confusing.

“makes errors corrected but not described to be regarded as “inappropriate” changes”, so it’s better to describe all the corrections.  against

against The sentence Ice is concerned about is only a “should”. We’d be in trouble if it was a “must”, but we’re okay here.
