Dear all, this is the second suggestion: The canonical name of all PDPs will be RIPE-PDP-YYYY-NN. Updated versions will receive suffixes like Internet Drafts, i.e. -v1, -v2, -v3. Old-style PDP names of the format YYYY-NN will remain valid, but all new documentation and communication by RIPE will use the new format. Alternatively, the name of the Working Group may be embedded in all names, e.g. RIPE-PDP-APWG-YYYY-NN, or RIPE-APWG-PDP-YYYY-NN. Rationale should again be obvious: Encoding information in names is good practice. Unique names make life easier for everyone involved. If other RIRs follow suit, cross-referencing becomes easier. Rationale for keeping "PDP" in the WG option is because a WG may want to publish something other than a PDP at some point. The alternatives should be decided upon during the discussion phase of the PDP. Richard
