Hi Joris, Actually, I read it a little differently to you - I think there _is_ general agreement to use ".tif", that is to use the same extension. I am thereore now proposing that we officially adopt ".tif" as the big tiff extension. To pass this vote, the four people on the committee need to agree: 1. Bob Friesenhahn. 2. Joris. 3. Frank Warmerdam. 4. Chris Cox. [I'm not saying anyone else isn't important, so please no-one get upset!] If all those four people can respond that they are in agreement, you (Joris) can then update your web site to say it's official.
