A list of "rare cases and odd usages" would be good to have for a semi-automated process!

It would definitely be useful. With Telecoms Package 2nd reading result "patched", I made some 3rd reading target AMs:


This "abuse" of the wikidiff function might look awkward to you, but it's actually quite useful:


The AMs above were all tabled.

This is getting interesting.

[Replace "dhfgsdfsd" by "qsdfsdfhsdf"] is a quite common instruction in the EP too.

See e.g. Telecoms Package (i.e. 2009/136+140/EC).


It would be awesome to re-verse-engineer that lingo to see if it is systematic enough to do automatic substitution.

I think it might be, but it is hard to say. If EU legislation is being kept up to date by someone, we wouldn't need to.

I did try this with some UK legislation. Quite a lot is easy enough, although the organisation of UK legislation can make even that difficult, but there are enough odd cases that it began to get hard. My guess is that there is a long tail of rare cases and odd usages that would make any really comprehensive job too difficult.

Jon Sheridan knows all about this and has thought about it a lot for legislation.gov.uk<http://legislation.gov.uk>. Since there is a publicly sponsored effort to make this all work right, I haven't felt motivated to do any more trying, fun though it is of course.
