Were they copied or typed in?  I thought Bill Dudney typed them in or
may have used the TC specs but made some changes.  I hate to copy them
in, but for the sake of consistency, perhaps you can/should do that.

There was talk of Grand Central Project here at Apache, which would
provide for a one-stop-shop for specs to prevent from copying.  Anybody
hear of any movement on that?

This seems like the best idea for Apache's projects.

This has been done numerous times before ;-)  You could also publish a
"G" version of them as a temporary measure..that also has been done before.

I agree with your approach.
