Ron wrote:- maybe we should split up some stuff into different documents
I wouldn't say different documents, but it would be nice to have things split up into sections based on whether they are definitions, things that matter to competitors, things that only matter to officials/organizers, and so on. So an organizer or official should know all of the regulations, but a competitor could ignore the other sections. I will color code my copy; once you confirm that it says the same thing as the original, you or I could split the regulations into sections by following the colors.

Do you know of any regulations that are specifically very well done? I don't think we should automatically assume that organizations with more people and a longer history have made a better document.
Ron wrote:- please look into how we can make the regulations more practical to read (for example: as a judge, as a journalist or as a competitor)
Separating the regulations into types would accomplish this, I think. Competitors and judges should probably know the same things.
Ron wrote:- please use British English
I will be happy to do this, but what's the reason? For instance, is American English more difficult for some people to understand? Or perhaps more people from the UK than from the USA will read the regulations?
