I would say that recipe.php should go in cookbook/ , and the
rest of the files should go in pub/recipe/ (perhaps recipe.css
should go into pub/css/ , but there's not much of a standard there).
Alternately, the entire package including the .php file could go
into pub/recipe/, as long as any .php files are protected or safe
from direct execution by a browser.
In general, any files that need to be accessible to a browser (such
a .gif images and .css files) belong in pub/ somewhere.

It depends -- the interaction of cookbook recipes and farms isn't
entirely defined. The question is one of whether one thinks that
cookbook recipes can be installed per-field or whether they should
always go into the farm. (PmWiki itself is purposefully silent on
In general, recipes that need to reference public files should probably
use $PubDirUrl, but also provide an option that allows the admin to
select a different location (e.g., $FarmPubDirUrl) if $PubDirUrl isn't
correct. Or, perhaps we can provide a variable or method whereby
cookbook recipes can determine if they're farm-based or field-based
and select the correct pub/ location accordingly.
