I think we should agree to go with ".tif" and rename all these files before this gets out of hand. Already we have 4 different extensions!!

Was there ever a consensus from the discussions in Oct 2004 concerning the recommended extension for BigTIFF?

The samples presented on the BigTIFF web page (http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/bigtiff.html) use "BTF", while the samples just posted to this list use "TF2". I have also found separate references that also recommend "TF8" and "TIFF".

What is the official word?

Perhaps the BigTIFF web page could be updated to provide this information. Or if a decision hasn't been made yet, what is the hold up?
