I certainly enjoy learning about all this and hopefully will be able to 
help documenting an update process!

I'm wondering what would be the best way to make the necessary 
modifications (versions, table, etc). There is no way for me to commit 
to your branch and add this to the pull request, so at this point, I 
could perform one of the following:

 1. Review and merge your pull request
    (https://github.com/cabforum/documents/pull/162) to master, then
    create another pull request with the informative changes, get this
    reviewed and merge to master
 2. Repeat your process and create an "SC25" branch in the
    cabforum/documents repo, add another commit with the informative
    changes, then create a new pull request, review, squash and merge.

If there are other options to explore, please let me know. Also, I would 
appreciate any preference you might have on how to best proceed with 
this process.
