The shortname is now qaframe-ops.  So if we change "Process & Operational 
Guidelines" to "Operations Guidelines" or "Operational Guidelines", then it 
actually matches the shortname better -- no need to change.

I'm out of time for today, but I have a table with the 7 names, and I'll 
send it Monday, after a little light editing and fix-up.

comment, the need for shorter and easier-to-remember names (e.g., maybe 
"Test Materials Guidelines" should just be "Test Guidelines"?)
