Ira,

Your suggestion  has merit. However,  alternatively, one can say that  since  the in process version  of the requirements document (as well as  any specification) is put in the 'wd' directory of the working  group,  an inprocess version of  the charter  should also go in  the  working group 'wd'  directory, perhaps  as 'wd-wgcharter10-yyyymmdd'.

The  way I  read  it, the approved charter goes  in the working group 'charter' directory,  unlike  other approved documents that go in  a general PWG directory. I  seem  to recall  someone  made a strong point  about that.

Any other interpretations?

Hi Bill,

Given that a Requirements spec is published as 
'wd-wgreq10-yyyymmdd', I suggest that a Charter
is published in the 'charter' subdirectory (of
the working group) as 'wd-wgcharter10-yyyymmdd'

According to the examples (but no other text) in
the latest Process/2.0 draft, the prefix is 'ch-'
for the charter after Formal Approval.  

By analogy to Requirements specs, I suggest that 
Harry's URL for an approved charter _should_ be:

.../charter/ch-[working group]ch10-yyyymmdd.pdf
                              ^^
Cheers,
- Ira

The current version of  the WIMS charter  draft is attached. If we have
consensus  in the group,  the  intent is to put  this up for  PWG last call,
with last call  to end at the Vancouver Meeting. 



I hate to bring  process up again, since attempts at clarification
inevitably  produce more questions.  However, I will  admit to some
confusion  with respect to naming  and where I  am to put  the current draft
of the charter and  the version  being put up for last call.  

The Process document says:
"Any document identified as PWG Charter, PWG Requirements, PWG Working
Draft, PWG Candidate Standard or PWG Standard represents a formal PWG
approved document,  which will be published in a durable location with
well-known path after achieving the appropriate Last Call and/or Formal
Approval."

This suggests that the only things that go into the identified directories
are approved documents. It is therefore unclear  where in-process drafts are
put and what they are named.  The example suggest  that in-process documents
are all  working  drafts  and are labeled with a preceding "wd-".

At any rate, when this is clear I will create  a WIMS  directory with the
just the 
		charter
		wd
subdirectories.


Thanks for your inputs.
