Agreement on a long term, platform independent, document format

In order to insure a long term document recovery, the participants
will use the ISO Open Document Format (O.D.F.) for common texts,
presentations and spreadsheets.

An automatic conversion of proprietary formats (Word, Excel and
Power Point) will be provided as a front-end towards the long term

O.D.F. is designed as a XML format, allowing subsequent data mining by future independent applications.
