Sorry if that's been asked already, but is there a page on the current "generic" naming conventions? Since my last update almost a year ago :^( on the datfile are listed the usual "x..." demos & unreleased, the "xxB." bioses and now some "z..." roms which in the search page appear as "not verified"... what is this section exactly?

The 'z' roms are just non-scene dumps (usually they come from P2P).
When the scene releases one of these roms, the 'z' rom dump will
get re-numbered and the details of the scene rom will be added.

OK. Being a kind of 'park area' for not yet released roms, when there's an official release the previous "z..." numbering will still refer to that rom or it is free for another one?

It's free for another one, or all is re-numbered back. Taking care of "z-numbering" order has no sense.
