Thanks, Garth

That’s what I get for writing this stuff at the end of my day. I am surprised that no one has an opinion on zipped/unzipped. It’s a hot topic.

The divvying is for the people on the epubcheck TF who said they were up for it.  Romain or Tobias were planning to write step-by-step instructions. I don’t want to break anything though. I hope to corner Romain when he see him later this week to make sure that we do this in a way that works.

The actual reorg is a real project. I am hoping that someone volunteers. I have a few people in mind if no one steps up.

Morning Tzviya,

I think there likely wants to be some discussion on the point of disagreement in the document between Brady and I, regarding the canonical storage format for test EPUB files -- zipped ".epub"s (based on Dave's file) or exploded directories (based on unzipping Dave's file).  Either will fit in the proposed structure, and there are some plusses and minuses to each -- those actually working with current test should likely chime in.

I'm not sure any egalitarian "divvying" will work in practice -- those that do the work must be comfortable with pulling the source and running/checking the tests -- and some light coding.  This reorganization is a real project.

Thanks Garth and Brady. We are ahead of schedule!

I see no comments on this. Do we all agree with this organizational structure for the repo?

Everyone did their homework very quickly. We now have a proposed naming convention for files [1], a minimal file [2]. Please take some time to review these proposals and offer your feedback by the end of the month, as we agreed.

I will divvy up the files for clean up according to these rules next week.

Hello epubchckers,

I've put together a proposal for this action item with Brady's blessing (and one noted area of disagreement).

The document can be found here<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1v7-aSgdA-6dd-5zOTOqwAJGlh2Aa4hYFX1TcCdDesYo/edit#heading=h.ymvhjyrr5mdi>.

Everybody with the link has comment access, and if specific folks would like to edit, just let me know.

Of course, conversation can happen on this thread too.

Have a good weekend (which I'm starting early just about now).
