Subject: Action required: Re: [office] Link to info-zip

The current proposal regarding the ZIP reference is:

In Section 17.2, the last paragraph remains as in ODF 1.0:

For more details about the Zip file format, see [ZIP].

In section 17.4, the first paragraph remains as in ODF 1.0 (except that 
another control language is used):

If a MIME type for a document that makes use of packages is existing, then 
the package should contain a stream called "mimetype". This stream should be 
first stream of the package's zip file, it shall not be compressed, and it 
shall not use an 'extra field' in its header (see [ZIP]).

The ZIP reference, which was

[ZIP] , .ZIP File Format Specification, 
http://www.pkware.com/products/enterprise/white_papers/appnote.txt, PKWARE 
Inc., 2004.

now reads

[ZIP]     Info-ZIP Application Note 970311, 
ftp://ftp.uu.net/pub/archiving/zip/doc/appnote-970311-iz.zip, 1997

If you have concerns regarding this proposal, please let me know them until 
tomorrow noon CET. Otherwise I will change the specification document as 
proposed and will create a ballot for acceptance of the new spcification as 
committee draft and for a public review of the draft on Wednesday.

Best regards
