Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Updated: (OFFICE-2205) NEEDS-DISCUSSION: ZIPreference [N 1309]

     [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2205?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Dennis Hamilton updated OFFICE-2205:

              Summary: NEEDS-DISCUSSION: ZIP reference [N 1309]  (was: ZIP reference [N 1309])
        Fix Version/s:     (was: ODF 1.0 Errata 03)
    Affects Version/s: ODF 1.0 Errata 02


THE DEFECT REPORT IS AGAINST IS 26300:2006.  The URL that appears in IS 26300 is not the same as the one in the OASIS ODF 1.0 Standard.

The one in the OASIS ODF 1.0 Standard is

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

This is the same specification referenced in ODF 1.2.  

1. No attempt should be made to repair the broken link in IS 26300 until the amendment and alignment with ODF 1.1 occurs.

2. The ODF 1.0 link is also now broken.  However, PKware Inc does have a place where that AppNote is still available.  If we want, we should correct ODF 1.0 to use the new URL that corresponds to the one above:

[ZIP] PKWARE Inc. Zip APPNOTE Version 6.2.0, available at
http://www.pkware.com/support/application-note-archives, 2004
This is as authoritative as it gets and it is archived for preservation as a reference in standards.
