Joining the PREFORMA network would mean to get direct information and means to influence our project, testing parts of the software during the development process and providing feedback and advice.
The group showed interested and participated actively, reporting their problem in producing correct PDF/A-files and looking forward to what PREFORMA and its suppliers can provide to help them to solve that problem.
