Digital trails: managing documentation for fast moving projects

Managing documentation for fast moving projects is a challenge. Different formats, different platforms, different people., different ways of working.

Maintaining a single database that links to all the documentation, in a way that makes sense for people unfamiliar with the work would be a full time job.

I like the idea of leaving digital trails. Every new document links to relevant, earlier documents. This creates a trail, a timeline of the work, where anyone starting with a recent document can find they way all the way back to the start of the project.
