What about an ongoing paper? Why couldn't someone publish a SGF paper that
shows where they are with solving some problem and where they plan to go
and then, using trivially easy technology, update the paper with
revised/corrected code, elaborated graphics, etc. daily, weekly, monthly,
quarterly or at the next SGF? I could almost swear that some SAS folks are
already doing what I am suggesting but leaving out the daily, weekly,
monthly and quarterly updates.
