Each Release shall be placed into a separate folder of its own. The folder shall be named with the a priority indicator (see below), followed by an underscore character, the ReleaseId of the Release communicated followed by an underscore character and the date/time of creation in the form YYYYMMDDhhmmssnnn to indicate a sequence with YYYY indicating the year in which the Release is placed on the ftp server while MM and DD indicate the month and day, hhmmss indicate the hour (in 24 hours), minutes and seconds. Finally nnn indicates the millisecond in which the Release is placed on the ftp server.

The value for the priority indicator may be "P" to indicate the Release is deemed to be a priority delivery and "N" to indicate the Release is deemed to be a non-priority delivery. The meaning of priority in this context should be agreed by Release Creator and Release Distributor  Mixing non-priority and priority deliveries may cause problems, especially when no acknowledgements are used.

The NewReleaseMessage shall be placed into the same folder. Resource files shall be placed into a subfolder called “resources/”.

If possible, the ReleaseId used should be a GRid as defined in the GRid standard. However, if that is not possible, the Release Creator and the Release Distributor shall mutually agree the use of a different unique identifier.

The ErnAcknowledgementStatusMessage shall be placed into a folder called acknowledgements/.
