The external specification

Another important form of closure is that there must be a document that describes what the software is supposed to do, so when the software is done, we can compare it to this external specification document to see if the software does what it is supposed to do.

Project documentation should be linked into the list of active projects. This entire tree is under RCS control so you can check out the active list, modify it, and check it back in.
