tDescription

Full

The files representing each type of component contain every version of every component ever released.

Snapshot

The files representing each type of component contain one version of every component released up to the time of the snapshot. The version of each component contained in a snapshot is the most recent version of that component at the time of the snapshot.

Delta

The files representing each type of component contain only component versions created since the previous release. Each component version in a

glossary-ref

Gloss
tdelta

release
represents either a new component or a change to an existing component.

The seven columns in each of the following illustrations represent the content of seven releases (numbered 1-7). Each

glossary-ref
Gloss
tcomponent
is identified by a letters (A-K). A glossary-ref
Gloss

The content of the

release
in any chosen version is identical to the combined content of all the glossary-ref

up to and including that version. Thus adding a glossary-ref
