Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2244) Provide Package-Level manifest:package-version attribute

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2244?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=29251#action_29251 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2244:


The addition of manifest:version to the <manifest:manifest> tag wasn't put into a working draft until 2010-02-25.  I'm not sure it was in Committee Draft that received Public Review until we sent out the full package for its first combined Public Review.  I will have to check.

With regard to penalization, I don't see the penalty.  If you acept it optionally and you produce it, there is no harm except for downlevel consumers (like Excel 2007) that will warn about it.

>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Packaging
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 1
>         Environment: This applies to ODF 1.2 Part 3 cd1 Packaging.
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
>            Assignee: Michael Brauer
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 2
> There are new attributes and potential breaking changes between the ODF 1.2 Part 3 Package and the package as specified in earlier versions of ODF.  It is not clear that backward-compatibility is preserved because of ways underspecified or loosely-constrained aspects of earlier specifications may have been implemented.
> A way to delimit this situation and assure that ODF 1.2 Part 3 Packages are distinguished and associated with this specification is by providing a mandatory version attribute in the package manifest.
