Just to confirm Leo's observation.

For each RIPE document, you can find on our website in the metadata on 
the righthand side in chronological order which previous versions were 
updated by that version.
If the document was obsoleted by another document, the metadata will 
also show that. In addition, the document itself will show "This 
document is obsoleted by ripe-xxx".
See for example:

In the related pdf-version you can find the information which RIPE 
document has been obsoleted by that document:

If you would find in any RIPE document some information missing, please 
let me know in a direct message and I will follow up.

The RIPE Policy page has a chronological order. Other order mechanism 
are available in the document store, for example to see all IPv6 related 

I hope this clarifies.

Kind regards,
Marco Schmidt
Policy Officer

There might well be the occasional omission, although I haven't seen any. If you have found some, letting the RIPE NCC staff know so that they can fix them is the right thing to do. Just asserting that there are many examples where there isn't a history is unhelpful.
