Fwd: Re: [Planner Dev] Suggestion regarding file extensions: suggesting compressed XML files.

How about .plx (planner xml)
How and  .plz for (planner zip)

if 4  letters are used then perhaps

plnx and plnz  (at first I tried plax but it made me think of my teeth :-)


.pnr sounds a bit like "personal number" and nothing like a plan of any

Question is, do we need to trademark Planner? We had a thought of
calling it Imendio Planner when we changed the name, perhaps we should
go ahead and doing so.

Not sure that we should change the suffix then. The suffix doesn't need
to be only three letter either, so if we can come up with a better name
than .mrproject (which is a really lousy name these days ;) that is like
four letters that's totally fine.
