h4. Relation to other format registries
A number of format registries already exist, such as [PRONOM|http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/PRONOM/], [the ArchiveTeam File Formats Wiki|http://fileformats.archiveteam.org/] and [UDFR|http://www.udfr.org/]. Unlike those registries, the OPF _FFRR_ focuses specifically on _issues_ and _risks_, and how to deal with these in a practical way. So the information provided by _FFRR_ should be seen as complementary to these more formal format registries. Being a _Wiki_, _FFRR_ is also more free-form than PRONOM or UDFR. That aside, the very nature of its content isn't well suited to a more formalised database-centred approach.
