Since I'm about to post documents for CR, I went through the file naming
section in detail.

1.  For a Working Draft (e.g.), the name is of the form:
     ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wg/wd/wd-wg10-yyyymmdd.pdf

But if a Working Group publishes multiple projects, shouldn't "wg10" be
replaced by something project specific?  And does the local file name have
to include the group name somewhere (for global uniqueness) or will that be
handled by the PWG standard number assigned later?

So, if the CR group publishes a working draft called "The
RepertoireSupported Element" what should I call it:
     ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/cr/wd/wd-cr10-yyyymmdd.pdf
     ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/cr/wd/wd-rs10-yyyymmdd.pdf
     ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/cr/wd/wd-crrs10-yyyymmdd.pdf


<ira> Process draft may not capture this yet, but the simple filename is
supposed to be formed as:

	wd-[wg][spec][version]-yyyymmdd.pdf

Which yields names like:

	wd-ippdoc10-yyyymmdd.pdf

	wd-crscr10-yyyymmdd.pdf
      - the first 'cr' is the working group
      - the 'scr' is (an acronym for) Standard Character Repertoires
    
It doesn't matter (much) what the short acronym for each spec is in
the filename - just that it's unique within the working group and is
never reused for a different meaning.

If the working group only produces one document (such as PSI at present),
then the middle string can just be [wg][version] like 'psi10'.

2.  Can we use the http: URL rather than ftp: in references to these
documents?  Seems friendlier.


<ira>
No - you can publish 'http:' URLs _in_addition_to_ the authoritative 'ftp:'
URLs, but there must be a stable 'ftp:' URL for each document (Web URLs
are often fragile and are also synthetic - they don't have any general
relationship to the underlying filesystem on the server).

There is really no last call process for the process document ;-). Please
review and prepare to try and close this formally at the Portland plenary.
If you can't make Portland please share you comments ahead of time so they
may be incorporated.
