Is there a policy on updating RFCs?

I have posted an RFC in Meditations. I have made some significant updates to it, but updated nodes don't seem to count as "new". I hesitate to post a new meditation as I don't want to spam PM.

I have searched the FAQ and PM discussions, but I may have missed something.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    If, as you say, it's a significant update, then post a new Meditation. You might include a "version" identifier in the title. And absolutely please do include a link to the old post in the new one. And updating the old one to point to the new one is an extremely good idea.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

      Replying to the old root node is often a good choice, especially if the original isn't that old. Just put a link at the top of the old root node pointing to the latest version (whether it is a reply or a new node).
