Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2205) ZIP reference [N1309]

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2205?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=23448#action_23448 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2205:

Errata 02 - ODF 1.2 Reconciliation
 - ODF 1.2 will reference the PKWare APPNote, the same that ODF 1.0 originally referenced.
 - The Errata 02 change provides a resolvable link to a different specification that is the one in IS 26300.
 - COR2 will make that change too.
 - The alignment with ODF 1.1 will change it back to an unresolvable info-zip one, and keep ODF 1.1 incompatible with ODF 1.2 in this respect.
 - When we do the ODF 1.1 Errata, it would be a very good time to go back to the PKWare Appnote.  If we make ODF 1.1 align with the fix here, ODF 1.2 will be a breaking change that we can't avoid making.  I suppose there is no harm to simoly making the IS 26300/AMD1 use a resolvable info-zip reference, unless the ITTF sheriff notices.

I am making a subtask here just so we notice the difficulty we have created for ourselves by whipsawing this reference.
