Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3448) ODF 1.2 CD05 Part 1- 5.5.4 Text Deletion Interoperable Definition Required

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3448?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=22349#action_22349 ] 

Oliver-Rainer Wittmann commented on OFFICE-3448:

I see this issue in relation with the change tracking proposal made by DeltaXML OFFICE-3312.

I agree that the ODF change tracking feature needs some more or better information about each tracked change, especially tracked deletions. But, I do not agree that the ODF specification has to fully describe how change tracking works, especially regarding rejection of a tracked change.
We have to assure in an improved or new ODF change tracking feature contains a statement about what a valid tracked change is on the XML level. See the proposal from DeltaXML - there is some wording like "a tracked change is correct, if the state of the document before and after the change is valid."
From my point of view the proposal from DeltaXML is a good starting. As I already stated during the ODF Plugfest in Brussels where we discussed the proposal together with the people from DeltaXML the proposal creates from my point of view a too complicated XML structure, especially for insertions. But, the meta data which the proposal of DeltaXML inserted into the XML about the tracked change is very valuable.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Needs Discussion, Part 1 (Schema), Text
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06
> This is related to ODF-2796 and other tracked changed discussions.
> We have evidence, based on difficulties that have been experienced, and in difficulties explaining section 5.5.4 and connected material t ourselves, that we lack enough information for independent interoperable implementation.
> We need a minimum sufficient description that need not go beyond what is known to be implemented, nor attempt to comprehend every particular nuance of what is known to be implemented, especially if it cannot be described without appealing to the implementtion.
