We are going on the assumption that the UPDF is a text file -
similiar to the PPD and GPD format. It's maybe a bit early
to specify exactly the text format since
we are just at the charter and requirement phase. I'll
make a note to make sure we address after the Charter
is approved and we start the actual specification.

Reading the InforWorld article and comments made by Michael Wu it would
seem it has been decided to use text file format. Is this correct?
Past e-mail messages and posted minutes don't indicate a decision was
made on the file type.

For UPDF to be of any benefit I require the UPDF format be compatible
between UNIX and PC's. Using a text file format works for me but I
would like to know if a decision has been made.
