Error description

  • The Help states
    (publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/doorshlp/v9/index.jsp?topic=/
    com.ibm.doors.requirements.doc/topics/c_modulehistory.html?lang=
    en)
    
    'By default, creating and deleting in-links and out-links is
    recorded in the module history'
    
    German variant:
    publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/doorshlp/v9/index.jsp?topic=/c
    om.ibm.doors.requirements.doc/topics/c_modulehistory.html?lang=d
    e
    
    'Standardm??ig werden die Erstellung und der L?schvorgang von
    Links im Modulverlauf aufgezeichnet.'
    
    i.e. German variant does not note in-links, out-links (which
    will be understood as DOORS links); just links.  The same is
    true of French/Spanish versions.
    
    
    The history of External links is not recorded.
    
    Expected Behaviour:
    
    The help should explicitly state that only the history of DOORS
    links is maintained.
