We appreciate your assigning a number to the Hoberman Sphere even if it is
not official. One of my duties is assigning PIRA DCS numbers to demos. I am
constantly making up PIRA DCS numbers. Our method is too use a one more
digit after the decimal such as 1Q20.160. The extra digit flags it so that
we can check later to see if it gets an official number.

I have searched the Demonstration Bibliography using the word "newsletter"
to see if the PIRA newsletter had ever been used as a reference. Only two
references were found and neither of these seemed to cause a PIRA DCS number
to be assigned because of publication in the PIRA Newsletter.

I would like to propose that a more efficient way of assigning numbers be
implemented. Once possibility would be to include publication in the PIRA
Newsletter as an acceptable criteria for assigning a number. Another way
might be to have a committee consider adding certain common demos that
should have a number. The Hoberman's sphere would be one example, the
windbag another.

Taplers, I have tentatively inserted the Hobermann sphere in the DCS at the
1Q20.16 location.
The DCS committee {I'm one} will need to give it a permanent blessing. Zig
