1. CHANGE OF NAME
To avoid using only female names on projects, it has been suggested that each major project be assigned the name of a variety of apple. To begin with, what once was the "Annie" project is now called the "Macintosh" project.
2. CATALOGING TECHNIQUE FOR MACINTOSH DOCUMENTS
As each document pertaining to Macintosh is written, it will be given a serial number. A catalog will be kept on a diskette in my files. I therefore request that any document pertinent to the Macintosh project not be released until it has been cataloged. This will permit any interested party to know what documents have been written, and will allow us to obtain and use these documents when necessary. The catalog will also be available in printed form upon request.
3. INTERNAL DESIGN OF DOCUMENTS
It would be appreciated if each item in each document be numbered, so that we may easily refer to it in other documents, for example:
Document 4, Version 3, Item 6.4.
The heading for each major numbered section will be in all caps, with subsections having the first letter of the first word capitalized.
4. USE OF EDITOR FOR DOCUMENTS
For improved communication, documents should, whenever possible,
be prepared on the Pascal Editor, with appropriate control characters
for Colin's formatting program. A typical heading for each document
DOCUMENT *** VERSION ***
THE MACINTOSH PROJECT
This will facilitate building a library of Macintosh documents, and easily allow modification and updating of these documents.
5. The file name of each document shall be of the form Mx.y.text where x is the document number and y is the version number. The catalog is M0.x.text.
6. The responsibility for maintaining the catalog shall initially be Jef's, but may be assigned to another member of the Macintosh team when appropriate.
7. Distribution lists and dates by which comments must be received
shall be part of the cover letter, and not part of the document.
