Material on this process is being gathered on the reference page PoCD IG Prep for 2018-09 Ballot

https://github.com/devices-on-fhir/PoCD-IG README file is an essential reference. These are some key links from that document:

Excerpt from page FHIR Implementation Guides relevant to current stage of work:

Excerpt from Standard FHIR Publishing Layout Pattern  relevant to current stage of work:

Every FHIR related specification has a {canonical} URL: this is the logical master URL at which the content is published. For example, the canonical URLs are fixed for HL7 published FHIR specifications:

The canonical URL is tied to the master web server that hosts the IG. The {root} directory is the physical directory on the web server that the {canonical} URL points to.

Inside a {specification} the content can be any valid static HTML desired. Javascript is allowed, subject to the limitations noted [todo]

The standard home page is 'index.html'

The main layout is 


A master file that lists the formal releases of the specification - typically, milestone drafts for connectathon support, ballot subjects, and final publications. It should also reference the current build


The current formally published version. e.g. STU1. When there is no formally published version, then this should be the latest milestone draft. After this is formally published as an STU, this is not necessarily the latest copy


Archived past versions of the specification. 

When you post a formal published version, you post it twice: once to {root} and once to {root}\{version}
