Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3553) ODF 1.1 Errata ZipReference Bind

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3553?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=23706#action_23706 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3553:

Since there is some discussion about why this change can't be made in an Errata at the 1.1, level, let me point out this change:

1. From OASIS ODF 1.0 Standard:

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

2. From OASIS ODF 1.0 Errata 02:

Replace the URL of the ZIP application note with:
Delete the text:
"PKWARE Inc., 2004."

This was overtly/blindly done to slide an IS 26300 defect-report repair worded as if it equally applicable to ODF 1.0, the only thing we can make Errata against.

>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3553
>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Packaging
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.0 (second edition), ODF 1.1, ODF 1.0 Errata 02
>         Environment: This issue straddles the differences between ODF 1.0 and IS 26300 and ODF 1.1.  ODF 1.0 Errata 02 gets into the act.
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
>            Assignee: Dennis Hamilton
>             Fix For: ODF 1.1 Errata 01
> See OFFICE-2205:
>  - 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. 
>  - IS 26300 COR2 will make that change too. 
>  - Unless we make the same change via ODF 1.1 Errata 01, 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, it will let the COR2 change to IS 26300 stand
>  - Unfortuantely, ODF 1.2 will be a breaking change that we can't avoid making, and now it breaks with respect to all versions of ODF 1.0/1.1 everywhere.   
> This note is so that this situation is watched for during creation of ODF 1.1 Errata 01 and the alignment that goes through the IS 26300/AMD1 process.
> I suppose there is no harm to simoly making the IS 26300/AMD1 use the resolvable info-zip reference, unless the ITTF sheriff notices.
