Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] EPUB3: how to use base.dir ?
Chris, Michael The problem was indeed in my build process but not in the mimetype or the way that it was zipped. Using Ant's exec task with the new way the base.dir parameter works I had to specify an additional parameter for Ant to know where to work creating the zip file (if anyone is looking for the exact solution, add a dir parameter to the exec task and set it to the same value as your base.dir parameter). Once that was added the errors disappeared. This is still puzzling as I did not have to do this before.
