Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2082) [Zip] reference isneither public nor authoritative

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2082?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16259#action_16259 ] 

Michael Brauer commented on OFFICE-2082:

The most recent Info-Zip appnote is based on the pkware  6.2.0 appnote, which is exactly the version mentioned in Dennis' proposal. So, referencing 6.2.0 and providing the link in the proposal seems to be a very reasonable choice to me.

>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Packaging
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.0, ODF 1.0 (second edition), ODF 1.1, ODF 1.2
>         Environment: This issue applies to all drafts of ODF 1.2 Part 3 Packages and the References and all references thereto in ODF 1.2 Part 1 and all previous versions of the OASIS ODF Standard.
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
> This issue is raised in the public comment at <http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office-comment/200910/msg00027.html>.
> 1. In ODF 1.2 Part 3 Packages draft-11-editor-revision, section 1.3, the normative reference for the Zip specification is given as
> [ZIP] Info-ZIP Application Note 970311, ftp://ftp.uu.net/pub/archiving/zip/doc/appnote-970311-iz.zip, 1997
> This same reference has been used in the OASIS Standards for ODF 1.1 and in ODF 1.0 Second Edition Committee Specification (and thereby IS 26300)..  
> 2. The reference for Zip, <ftp://ftp.uu.net/pub/archiving/zip/doc/appnote-970311-iz.zip>, in ODF 1.2 Part 3 draft 11 is non-resolvable.  The content previously reachable at that location has no clear provenance nor authority.
> 3. For ODF 1.0, the reference for Zip is 
> [Zip] ZIP File Format Specification, http://www.pkware.com/products/enterprise/white_papers/appnote.txt, PKWARE Inc., 2004.
> This reference is more authoritative but non-specific.
