solferino writes "The National Archives of Australia has released Xena under GPL2. Xena detects the file format of digital objects and, where necessary, converts these objects into open formats. They define an open standard as 1) Full specification available without restriction, 2) Community developed, 3) Multiple implementations and 4) No licensing constraints. The list of file formats they detect and convert includes MS Word docs (converted to ODF). Their aim, as befits an archive, is the long term preservation of digital records."
