Request states: example comparison
This page shows differences between states used on two different Alaveteli instances — one in Kosovo and one in the UK. This is a practical example showing that you can customise the states that your site uses.
The request states are defined in the Alaveteli code, and we recommend you use them (provided they match the FOI law in your own jurisdiction).

Generally, this arises simply because the local legislation, or the way the groups running the sites work, are different in different places. Alavateli facilitates this by allowing you to customise the states that are used.
This example is to show clearly that you can use different states depending on your local requirements, and how that might look. See Customising the request states for details on how to do this.
