Uniqueness of iteration ID's and good naming conventions

Hi,

I have been working with RTC for quite a while doing installations and demos.

One thing that bugs me a little is that I can not seem to figure the reach
of an iteration ID. Is it supposed to be unique within a development line
or does it have to be unique over all development lines?

Also, in case one has several (many) development lines is there some best
practice or naming convention that proved to work good?

Thanks,

Ralph

Iteration IDs must be unique only among its peer iterations (within the same
parent). The parent is either a development line, or another iteration.

The naming of development lines and iterations would be really specific to
each project, or maybe guided by the process template being used. I don't
have any more to offer in terms of best practice.

Ryan, are spaces allowed in an iteration identifier? I can't find that
in the documentation.

Yes, spaces are allowed in the iteration identifier.
