The filenames are listed at the end of each line. The most important is the file TOPICS. this is a list of all the topics (subject lines) and which digests they appear in. Here is a snippet of the TOPICS file:

To get the TOPICS file send a mesage to email@example.com with the following in the body:
get precision-digest TOPICS end
Note that the filename TOPICS must be all CAPS just like it was listed in the index.
From your list of topics find the digest issues you want and request them. For example we want to get the digests for "Additional Ballast P21" which are v02.n230, v02.n231, v02.n238. Send another message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following in the body:
get precision-digest v02.n230 get precision-digest v02.n231 get precision-digest v02.n238 end
Note that each issue you want is a separate line and that these filenames are all lower case.
Now you can see why accurate subject lines in posted messages can really help in locating information. Don't reply to a message and switch topics without correctly the subject liine.
