> Over on TIKA-1358, we're working to add a parser for the 2013 Apple iWorks files.  We
aren't quite sure what the final solution will be, but a key component will be exporting protobuf
descriptors from Apple's applications, either literally from [obriensp|https://github.com/obriensp/iWorkFileFormat/tree/master/iWorkFileInspector/iWorkFileInspector/Messages/Proto]
or perhaps, in the future, on our own, probably through [protodump|https://github.com/obriensp/proto-dump].
> Are there any licensing issues with using those protobuf descriptors to build protobufs
for distribution within an Apache licensed project?
> Alternatively, is anyone aware of an API or other means available for parsing these files?
