Re: Voting [was: Passing UMOs]

We are clearly missing one important distinction in this discussion:

there are different types of "UMO users":
1. Those who study it
2. Those who modify it
3. Those who reference it in their own UMOs

1. Student
- Student only sees one version of UMO.
- Once student starts studying that version, he is locked into it
  (i.e. even if new version of UMO is created, student is still studying it)

2. Modifiers (Authors, Translators)
- Obviously, authors and translators have full access to all versions of UMO

3. Referrers (authors of another UMO)
- They can browse all UMO versions
- They decide which exact version to link their UMO to

Please remember about these three categories of users,
and please specify explicitly which one you are talking about
in further discussion.
