1. Upgrade the list of authors, as for the other UCD-related Recommendation Documents.

Response (by AndreaPreiteMartinez):

Comment accepted.


2. In Section 2.2, I think it would be better if the web form for submitting RFMs had a URL at It would be fine if this were simply then redirected to CDS, but as an IVOA-level service I think this should have visibility on the IVOA web and an IVOA URL.

Response (by AndreaPreiteMartinez):

I agree. I then modified the text of the document as follows:

"A web-based form for requesting a modification of UCD words has been set up and it is accessible from the IVOA WG page at: ."

and, accordingly, the Links section of the WG page at

3. In Section 2.3, the sentence "A negative answer shall be motivated" should be replaced by "A negative answer must be explained."

Response (by AndreaPreiteMartinez):

Comment accepted.


4. In section 2.4, 'IVOA community' means everyone subscribing to And in the very beginning of section 2, it says that 'any member of the community can submit at any time a request for modification'. So does the combination of the two previous sentences also mean that only people registered to can submit a RFM? What if someone is not part of and would like to submit a RFM nonetheless? Or is it unlikely to happen maybe?

Response (by AndreaPreiteMartinez):

I changed "community" into "IVOA community" in order to avoid ambiguity.
