can only extrapolate from my EU experiences, but if stuff is accepted there,
i'd expect it to be similar in MS.

the old formats of amendments does not allow exactly that? like in the 2 and 3
way diffs the parliament publishes (again based on EP experiences)

does that work at your "democracy"? in europes we have compromise-amendments
and other ways to dilute the responsibility and thus the blaming is defused.
amendments are introduced not by the MEPs, but by their staff as well, see
erik creating and championing amendments.

lobbyplag did i think a much more useful service by going further and
attributing the blame not on the meps, but on the influencers. much less focus
on the tool, and much more emphasis on the outcome.

i have all the data to put the EP into git, i was thinking about it back when
stefan did it, and i did not find any positive return on my investment into
this project, also discussions with stefan did not convince me. i am still
looking for one, to explain at least why the others do it. maybe your
legislative environment is different from the one i'm working on, but i doubt
serious differences.
