C&C 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.
C&C UW Technology (acting as institutional group naming authority) controls the top-level stem space. Top-level stems can be created as needed, based on discussion with stakeholders and establishment of clear definition and requirements. Like any stem, a top-level stem must have a well-defined naming authority to manage it.
