With P5, the TEI is committed to a completely new
release of the Guidelines, including Schemas,
Documentation, Stylesheets and other files, while at
the same time also continuing to maintain the current
release tree of P4. To faciliate the task of managing,
releasing, explaining and using this complex system, I
would like to see a well thought out and documented
layout of the TEI subtree on the file system.

As a model for this, I would like to point to a
document from the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, which
details how XML/SGML applications are to be handled in
the distribution, which is available at
http://debian-xml-sgml.alioth.debian.org/xml-policy/xml-dir-layout-file-placement.html

The gist of this would be something like the outline
below, although the details will of course have to be
thought out more clearly.

(.../xml/)/tei/
custom/
myTEI/
schema (customized versions from
Roma etc. go
here)
stylesheet
doc/ (guidelines go here,
maybe also
versioned)

    I will release a proposal for this at the members
    meeting in October, instantiated as a series of Debian
    packages. I hope this will provide a testing ground
    to clear up the area.

    The Debian-like system has been implemented in the
    TEI packages delivered on SF
