We focus on situations where documents serve to coordinate a distributed community of action. In such contexts, it is possible to analyse the traces of collective activity left in documents. We use the DofA (Documents for Action) conceptual framework in order to define a model of documentary traces. Based on this model, we propose dependencies which are specifically suited for DofA. The analysis of these dependencies will permit to understand more precisely the evolution of the cognitive and social dynamics of the community.
