Snapshots vs. Successions

Baseprint Document Format (BDF) is the digital encoding format for Baseprint document snapshots, which can be redistributed and archived through various mechanisms. Some preprint servers could archive Baseprint document snapshots in a centralized approach. Alternatively, Baseprint document snapshots can be redistributed and archived in a distributed approach as Baseprint document successions.
