Subject Status of the Simple Java API for ODF and ODFDOM - 08/10/2011
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 15:13:54 GMT

(We should send  this to project mailing list, but we don't have one yet.
so sorry for interrupt those guys in incubator general mailing list)

   ODF Toolkit move to Apache
   1. SVN account has been created and is now available for use. We will
   discuss and start the code move after mail lists are ready;
   2. The first board meeting is scheduled for Wed, 17 August 2011, 10 am
   Pacific. We have submitted a quarterly board report to here.
   3. As we have been an Apache incubator project, so we will discuss and
   release ODF Toolkit in the new community. The original release plan have
   to be cancelled.

   Simple ODF
   1. Reviewed and pushed a bug about TextProperties (#bug 357).
   2. Reviewed and pushed three unit test coverage enhancement patches
   (#bug 241) .
   3. The downloads of Simple ODF 0.6.5 has been to 204. This number equals
   with Simple ODF 0.4. But version 0.4 uses more 6 months get it, while
   version 0.6.5 uses only 40 days.

   1. Working on data signature. There are two issues caused by OpenOffice
   block the process.
       (1) generate a Namespace unaware signature document.
   ODFDOM loads it fails.
       (2) creates multiple X509Certificates instead of the
   correct certification chain under ds:KeyInfo.
       see also: (ds namespace
         in LibreOffice) (ds
         namespace in OOo) (multiple
         X509Certificate  in OOo)
       We have to supply two modes to fix it. One follows ODF
   specification, the other follows Open Office. The question is which is
   the default?
   2. A new user: XDocReport uses ODFDOM to load and manipulate ODF
   document. It's Java API to merge XML document created with MS Office
   (docx) or OpenOffice (odt), LibreOffice (odt) with a Java model to
   generate report and convert it if you need to another format (PDF,
