Context and Problem Statement

We want to record architectural decisions made in this project. Which format and structure should these records follow?

Considered Options

Decision Outcome

Chosen option: "MADR 2.1.0", because
  • Implicit assumptions should be made explicit.
    Design documentation is important to enable people understanding the decisions later on.
  • The MADR format is lean and fits our development style.
  • The MADR structure is comprehensible and facilitates usage & maintenance.
  • The MADR project is vivid.
  • Version 2.1.0 is the latest one available when starting to document ADRs.
