nichtich has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== How to express distributions provided as compressed files ==
The `dcat:downloadURL` of a `dcat:Distribution` can point to compressed files (`.zip`, `.gz`...). What is the data format in this case? Stating that it is a ZIP-File will not help much: the more interesting information is what's in the archive. For `dcat:mediaType` the `+gzip` [MIME TYPE suffix](https://www.iana.org/assignments/media-type-structured-suffix/media-type-structured-suffix.xhtml) can be added but what to put into `dct:format` - an identifier of the archive format or of its content (I'd prefer the latter)?
