           number (two digits). For directions on formating the name
           of the document, see page 20 of Producing-LO-
           userguides.odt. For example, WG33-WorkingWithText.odt is
           chapter 3 of the Writer Guide for LibreOffice version 3.3.x.

At the moment we are using a different naming convention. The one you
describe is probably better, but I would amend some details in your
paragraph above, as follows:

Name: CCDDBB (third D not needed)
Example: WG3303-WorkingWithText.odt would be Chapter 3 of the Writer
Guide for LibreOffice version 3.3.x.

    I did not proofread what I had written. I meant to write
CCDDBB-Name, but I added an extra D. I also left off the 0.

Thanks for doing this.


     I'm suggesting that our naming convention cover three types of
1. Drafts: CCDDBB-Name
2. Published chapters: AABBCC3-Name
3. Published book: AA00CC3-Name.pdf
     This identifies to what category a document in the draft folder
belongs: draft, or published. A draft would be a new document or a
revision of a published document. Once the draft has gone through the
approval steps, it is published with the corresponding naming convention
for published chapters.
     If the draft is a revision, then it would replace the earlier
published chapter. If the draft is a new chapter, it becomes a new
published chapter.
     Maybe what threw me was the Heading on page 20: "Naming convention
for published chapters." Later, the heading: "Naming convention for
published books." My mathematical mind asked: Then what is the
convention for draft chapters?
     Just a thought.
