Subject [jira] [Commented] (FOP-1814) Option to make PDF binary equal between runs (for Apache Forrest)
Date Tue, 13 Feb 2018 10:42:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-1814?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16362118#comment-16362118

Gavin commented on FOP-1814:

This still affects Forrest although we do have a workaround for our own site.

Any chance this will get a look soon?

> FOP currently always creates a file ID in the PDF trailer even though it's optional.
It is required mostly be PDF/A and PDF/X. It may make sense to disable the generation via
a configuration item. We probably shouldn't disable it by default because some people may
rely on it by now.
> Second, the metadata date is always set to the current date even if it is given in an
XMP packet. That also prohibits binary equality.
> Adding this would allow Forrest to produce the same PDFs from run to run so they don't
cause SVN diffs all the time.
