File and Folder Rules

  • File and folder specifications would aid in converting RPS messages into NeES-like submissions --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
  • This should be left up to the individual regulators, and is out of scope for the RPS message --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)


  • Eliminating between-document hyperlinking would eliminate any need to specify file and folder structure --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Eliminating between-document hyperlinking would slow down review --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Between-submission-unit hyperlinking currently requires that assembly tools "know" how submission units are stored relative to each other. --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Most proposed solutions to reroute "broken" or "updated" links would require Acrobat plug-ins or server-side redirectors, which is out of scope for the RPS project -- we can create specifications, but not enforce them. --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
  • One alternative would be that the RPS message must include all between-document link information, so that a review system can construct the necessary links. This would remove the need for betweee-document links in the documents themselves, but would still require the review system to have enhancements. --Joelfinkle 22:33, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
