Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2257) NEEDS-DISCUSSION:Package 7.2.2 Conforming OpenDocument Extended Package Not Useful

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2257?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=18757#action_18757 ] 

Michael Brauer commented on OFFICE-2257:

Dennis: Before applying OFFICE-2532 the only difference between a conforming and an extended conforming package was that the extended conforming document may contain additional files in META-INF. So, an implementation that can open conforming packages can also open extended conforming packages.

With the application of the resolution of this issue this changed, since extended conforming packages can support addition compression algorithms. I understand your concern with that. So, if no one objects, the best solution indeed may be permit only DEFLATE.

Regarding extended conforming packages: What is important to me is that implementation can add files to the META-INF folder if they need to do that. I would have no objections, to removing clause (PD1.5) it [a conforming package] shall not contain other files whose relative path begins with  "META-INF/" other than than those listed in (PD1.2) and (PD1.4). and also the extended conforming packages.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Conformance, Packaging
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 1
>         Environment: This issue applies to ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD01 (file OpenDocument-v1.2-part3-cd01.odt plus the PDF and HTML formats).
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
>            Assignee: Michael Brauer
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 2
> 1. In Part 3 section 7.2.2, the only difference made between a Conforming OpenDocument Package and Conforming OpenDocument Extended Package is when the optional mimetype file and the optional <manifest:file-entry> element with manifest:full-path="/" are both present.  For a Conforming OpenDocument Package, the manifest:media-type attribute value must match the mimetype file content.  For a Conforming OpenDocument Extended Package, agreement is not required.
> 2. I fear that I may have had something to do with this being in here.  Either way, I find that this is insufficient cause to define two conformance targets hinged on such a minor difference.
> 3. The consequence of this two-level approach is a great deal of effort having to say when a provision (or related conformance target) applies to Conforming OpenDocument Documents and when Conforming OpenDocument Extended Documents are also included or excluded.  
> 4. Supplementai Issue OFFICE-2259 proposes one way a specialized conformance target requiring presence and agreement between the two MIME Type occurrences.
