Hi all,

This conversation is excellent, I look forward to discussing this on Friday with all of you. As I’m not an expert on packaging and the pros and cons of various methods, I hope we can work together on finding a solution that meets our needs by comparing the options we have before us.


I created this explainer (AudioTF members will recall I mentioned this a few weeks ago, it’s now formally part of the explainers for anyone who has not seen it).

I just want to reemphasize our main goal, especially as we discuss packaging:
Create a specification for the audiobook format that is usable on both the web and in packaged contexts

Audiobooks are not just a web product, nor are they just a B2B transaction. Our spec, our decisions, must reflect the flexibility of the web with the constraints of the distribution model. Users need options for opening and enjoying their content, publishers need options for distributing, retailers need options for receiving and processing files. Our spec should aim for all of those things, and I think they’re all possible if we remember our goals.

I’ll be preparing another document for us to fill in as a group to present to the WG on packaging to discuss the pros and cons of various models, come prepared!

Leonard, do really want us to reference a 163 page document (http://web.mit.edu/~stevenj/www/ECMA-376-new-merged.pdf even if it's not the up to date version) full of XML for just stating the we use Zip?

I know in the original version of ODF they had their own, but I thought they had moved to OPC since it’s pretty much the same thing (as you said, mostly minor details).

At the end of the day, we could probably pick any one of them (except OCF) and be happy with it – assuming the desire for a ZIP-based package.
