[TSC-public] Progress on ELF

GEDCOM 5.5EL is no longer supported but replaced by the conclusions of Gedcom-L, as described in 
The reason were:
- GEDCOM 5.5EL did not follow the GEDCOM spec in some definitions,
- more features of the GOV system (http://gov.genealogy.net/search/index) were implemented in the Gedcom-L model

The Gedcom-L version uses the possibilities the GEDCOM standard gives for user defined tags, and follows the rules of GEDCOM standard.
There is no formal spec available for these agreements.

Does anyone have a copy of the GEDCOM 5.5EL spec?  For that matter, is there was one?  I've seen quite a few discussions and descriptions of it online, including this one:


But I don't recall ever seeing a formal specification.
