We already have (currently undocumented) aliases on the main pwg.org web site to the standards directories.  It would be trivial to support "http://ftp.pwg.org/..." aliases for all "ftp://ftp.pwg.org/..." links.

Anyone that is subscribed to the WG mailing lists automatically should be subscribed to the pwg-announce list, but you can subscribe to just the pwg-announce list at:
