Subject Re: Binary object format KB article
Date Wed, 16 Oct 2019 11:52:06 GMT
Pavel, Sergey,

Thank you for your feedback!

To be exact the document does not describe broad picture (including
metadata exchange) and is not a formal format specification
intentionally. I wanted to create a lightweight article giving an
intuition about binary object structure to a reader. And yes,
intuition about metadata registration is definitely an important,
related but slightly different subject.
