We need to identify ZIM files with the same content over the time to be
able to provide update mechanisms.
Use case example:
* User owns a ZIM file with Wikipedia in French from 2010.
* New version is released in 2011
* User is automatically warned about that and the software propose to
update (download) the content.
This is the reason why I propose to introduce an optional serieid in
the ZIM format.
Yes, it would be great if we could support this as well.

So far as I remember when we have defined the metadata we also defined that these attributes we have defined are also mandatory, while additional metadata (ideally also defined by dublin core) may be used.

With the multiplication of ZIM files and ZIM editors we need ways to
Without the metadatas they are not easy way to build these overviews
(You have to do it by hand every time).
This is waht I learned by coding the content manager of Kiwix which
So I think, having ZIM files with metadatas is essential, maybe even
I think we have to push the usage of these metadatas (title,
description, creation date, creator, favicon, language) and I see 3
(1) Make these informations mandatory
(2) Make a recommendation but nothing blocking
(3) Do nothing and be optimistic
What would be your preferred approach?
