Hello LPResearch and SQM lists,

Attached is the most recent version of the proposed skyglow data
format.  This time around there were very few comments, and only minor
clarification changes were made to the documentation.  I hope that
those of you at the Starlight conference will find time to consider it
and send Dorien your endorsement.  If there are any last minute
comments please send them to me.

We will hold a vote on the data delimiter in the next week.

Thanks again to everyone who has examined the document and commented on it,
