I agree. The now archived discussion page to decide if the template should be kept or deleted contains many useful suggestions for currently undocumented parameters.123.211.125.61 (talk) 04:58, 16 October 2011 (UTC)
  • I suggest, however, that the parameters of both version and revision be added. This is because a version of a manual is not the same as a revision. For example, a manual may come in more than one language version. Further, for any specific language version of a manual, there may be both a full version and an abridged version, the latter typically intended for quick and easy reference; or the abridged version may be free but the full version must be bought. If it's a training manual published by a government department, then the abridged version may have been released into the public domain, while the full version may be classified or restricted. Revision by contrast is a further layer, often lying above the version layer because every version of a manual may subsequently go through one or more revisions. In some cases, however, a well-established and popular revision of a training manual may be published subsequently in different versions: language; full/abridged; classification status; etc. See for example French version of Broadcasting Pluralism and Diversity: Training Manual for African Regulators123.211.125.61 (talk) 05:07, 16 October 2011 (UTC)
