I am currently working on some documentation, and I find myself having to express to idea of evolving towards a final state multiple times. I would like to know if a word (preferably a verb) expressing this whole concept exists already.
As far as I know, evolving feels more like something which can be done perpetually, while I would like to carry the idea that evolving in such a case have its "boundaries". Eventually, if it is not a single word, maybe there is a formal way to shorten the whole concept?
Another idea could be something like "growing", since growing feels more physical, hence necessarily has boundaries, but it does not fit my context:
this transaction can
evolve towards its final stategrow by requesting actions over it. You do so by either requesting a cancellation or actually capturing the funds.
