But that *is* what I mean.  If you have a version that you have 
edited with change tracking turned on, then please ssend that

If I want the diffs between any two arbitrary versions, I can 
prepare them myself.  If I want each change to be annotated with 
the person who made it, and a timestamp, then I need the original.

Actually, for my purposes, I'd like both the version with change 
tracking, and a clean version such as you get from "accept all 
changes".  I have found that if I "accept all changes" myself, in 
LibreOffice, I often get a result different from what the original 
author would get in Microsoft Office.  I strongly suspect that 
this is due to bugs in LibreOffice.
