UW Technology is incrementally extending the UW Groups Service to support new modes of group definition, more groups, more campus organizations defining groups, and more uses for groups.  A key design component is a naming plan for groups that supports the eventual campus-wide scope of the service.  It is desirable to start naming groups using a plausible scheme, even while many other aspects of the system are not yet in place.  This document specifies a group naming plan for the UW Groups Service, including syntax and top-level name components.
