Subject: Re: [ubl-lcsc] filenaming - minor rec

Stephen, Ken,

Ref Peter's comment, I've noticed that pre-draft-5 models
were sent as "1.0-alpha" while draft-5, draft-6 and draft-7
models were sent as "1-0-alpha".  And Ken's recent XPaths 
are named as "1-0-alpha" as well.

I had named the schemas "1.0-alpha" following an LC call a while
back, when QA Packaging was setting up, that had tossed around 
advantages and disadvantages about naming with a "." (nicely 
summarised by Peter below).  I recall from memory that there 
were some discussions about why "p" wasn't suitable 
(as in "1p0), why "-" might not be appropriate (as in "1-0"),
and why it'd probably be best leaving it as ".".

Ref: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl-lcsc/200308/msg00041.html
para 4 last section on Versioning noted the conclusion.

I'm ok to change if there has been some change of decision.
But more importantly, all our namings should follow the same
