I took over the method from Dominique when massaging the TR page. This 
means using the non-dated URI for a document to generate an ID using the 
following python function:

# Generation of an ID from a "shortname", IE the non-dated URI-s 
identifying the core document
# The generation follows Dominique's way of generating ID-s when 
generating the /TR pages
def generateId(resource,ID=false):
	uri = "%s" % (resource,)
	# get the possible trailing '/' off:
	if uri.endswith('/') :
		uri = uri[:-1]
	# make the uri relative, ie, cut off all characters before the last '/'
	slin = uri.rfind('/')
	if slin != -1 :
		uri = uri[slin+1:]
	# some uri-s might contain '+' signs, get them out:
	retval = uri.replace('+','-').replace('.','-')
	if id == false :
		return retval
	else :
		# A further issue is to get everything out before a '#'
		hash = retval.rfind('#')
		if hash == -1 :
			return retval
		else :
			return retval[hash+1:]

the shortname can be extracted from


using the predicate 'doc:versionOf'.



is a good collection; if you have other entries to add, please do!
