You can try to ask Adobe to reserve the tag number for Hylafax

My understanding is that SGI reserved tags 34908 through 34914 for HylaFAX. We're currently only using 34908-34910. If my understanding is incorrect, please correct me.

The one who registered that set of tags knows what was they purpose in the first place. If you are sure that those tags are intended for Hylafax and still don't used for other purpose you can pick up the unused one.

When you will have the special tag I can add support for it into libtiff.

Thanks. I'll need to write up a patch for suggested libtiff support for the new tag myself, to test it while I work on the HylaFAX side of things. However, I would certainly appreciate some comments on this:

Sorry for delay with that report, but this is not a trivial issue and I just should spend some time to dig into the problem, so I can't comment on this right now. By the way, one of the menrioned bugs already fixed (JPEG codec now works with the fax related tags too).

Best regards,
Andrey
