Recording failed amendment

No. In fact, if the amendment was adopted, the minutes would only show the motion as amended (see p. 472, ll. 21-28, for an example).

Although the sample minutes also record (p.473, ll.3-5) a motion that was adopted "after amendment and further debate".

Since the maker of a motion is recorded, it seems reasonable to record that, if amended, it wasn't adopted in its original form. No such consideration is necessary if the original motion was not amended prior to adoption.

Nothing regarding the text of an amendment is required, even if the amendment is adopted. If adpted the motion, as amended, is recorded.

Yes, but there's a difference between recording the motion as amended (i.e. in its final version) and noting that it had, in fact, been amended.

The minutes should record the final version of the motion as adopted, noting (something like) "after amendment and further debate". (RONR 11, p. 473 ll. 3-6) Thus, it should be obvious to anyone reading them that the final, adopted version was not the same as the original motion, although the content of the amendment is not recorded for posterity.

Which is what I said:

My point being that J.J.'s initial statement that the motion be recorded as amended did not clearly indicate that the fact that it had been amended should also be noted.
