Hi,                                             Monday (5 December 2005)

[Background - The Counter MIB is currently passing through PWG Formal
Approval to become a PWG Informational specification.  Publication (if
approved) would require a new standard file prefix (since obviously
neither of the current info prefixes 'req' or 'bp' would apply).]


I have just posted a revised PWG Namespace Policy in the directory:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/general/process/

in the file:

    pwg-namespace-policy-20051205.txt

This update should be approved over the PWG mailing list to avoid delay.
After approval by PWG Steering Committee, this document should be copied
to the durable URI (inside the document) in '.../informational.

Cheers,
- Ira (editor of PWG Namespace Policy)

Change Log:

(0) Corrected several typos in ABNF and examples.

(1) Added example of technical brief for BOF _before_ creation of WG.

(2) Added several file suffixes to 'ext' element in ABNF (for JPEG,
    WSDL, SNMP MIB, etc.).

(3) Separated 'ch' prefix to 'charterpfx' from 'infopfx' element in ABNF
    (to follow recent IPP WG usage).

(4) Corrected example of WG charter development and target directory
    (to follow recent IPP WG usage) - charter is drafted in '.../wg/wd'
    and archived (after Formal Approval) in '.../wg/charter'.

(5) Separated 'err' prefix to 'erratapfx' from 'stdpfx' element in ABNF
    (per example in PWG Process/2.0).

(6) Corrected example of ABC errata development and target directory
    (per example in PWG Process/2.0) - errata are drafted in '.../wg/wd'
    and archived (after Call For Objections) in '.../errata'.

(7) Added new 'info' prefix to 'infopfx' element in ABNF.

(8) Added new example of development of a protocol to Informational (no
    prototype blocks Candidate Standard status).
