Subject RE: [RELEASE] Bug 118037 - oo should warn opening/saving libreoffice files
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 19:11:53 GMT
I agree with Oliver that it is INVALID.

This means using metadata in valid ODF files as a way of discriminating against the producer.
 That sucks.  The generator marker is explicitly not for this purpose.  

How unsupported features are dealt with when opening such a file is a different matter and
a much larger issue.  It also arises with documents from up-level versions of the same product
(even when all use the same version of ODF).

The handling of extensions (i.e., not defined in ODF) from another producer raises similar
considerations.  It all depends on whether the extension-usage occurs in a document, not whether
the document is from a particular producer.

Instead of closing,would it make sense to just turn this into an
enhancement request and remove the release blocker flag?  That way it
will still show up in BZ as a feature that someone might volunteer to
implement in a future release.

What is the convention for dealing with things like this?  I agree it
is "WONTFIX" for 3.4.  But can't we just leave it open for possible
fix in future releases?
