    As much as I'd like one all encompassing UPDF, I think having only one PDL per
    UPDF is the only practical solution.

    Subject: UPD> PDL per UPDF

    We never finally decided whether we will allow exactly one PDL per UPDF
    description or more.
    I put that on vote.
    Please send your vote this week.
    We will decide on Friday, March 30th, late afternoon.

    My personal vote is one PDL only.
    Don't move more information around than you need.
    Editing of XML files is easier, when there are parrallel files (master
    description, command sequences, locales, etc.) instead of editing different
    sections in very different areas of one huge file.
    Development is possible in steps done by different groups, while one huge
    description probably never gets done.
