ASTM Specification Revision Changes

#1
I am trying to understand the differences between the types of Rev changes with ASTM specifications. Some of the changes would include a rev letter change (eg. E140-12, 12a, 12b, ect) and others may only be an editorial change (eg. E140-05, 05e1, etc). Since we are required to have the most recent rev on file, it is my understanding that we would need to purchase every single editorial change. Does anyone know why the editorial change isn't identified the same as an alpha rev change?

Because you likely wouldn't buy it. There's a method to their madness; there is money involved...;)

Everything you want to know and a lot more is here. See section A3.

Form and Style for ASTM Standards - March 2013

If the standard is revised again during the same year, this is indicated by adding an “a” for the second revision, “b” for the third revision, etc. These are true revisions that should be worth checking out if the standard is relevant to you.

I would not be too concerned with editorial changes denoted by "e".
They are generally trivial.
