After many years as an IETF Draft, the BagIt Specification is being
prepared for submission as an IETF Internet Standard. This will be known as
version 1.0. We are looking for your assistance in:
* Giving the latest draft [1,2] a final proofread / review, especially the
recently added ABNF descriptions. If you find any errors, please create an
issue or submit a pull request . If you have substantive recommendations
/ modifications, please hold on to them for a post 1.0 revision.
* Reviewing the one significant change being considered in the latest
draft. This change is requiring every payload file to be in every payload
manifest. The motivation for this is that it reflects actual real world
usage and reduces errors. However, it would mean that some existing bags
may not be forward compatible with version 1.0. If you have comments on
this, please add to this ticket .
We will be taking comments up to April 9.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
