Hi TechWrl Family,

(I'm loving this list by the way) -- Now that my company has started to
grow a library of professional documentation, someone suggested assigning
part numbers to the documentation instead of just the date it was released.
But, the convention they use for our part numbers doesn't quite work for

What numbering conventions can you suggest? Right now I just keep the
latest version of something on our Google wiki, which has a version
history, so that sort of works. But I feel like it would look more polished
if we started using some fancy, "no idea what that number means --
QT75729A2 is so mysterious" numbering system.
