Can someone explain why the Wikimedia Commons accepts
printable PDF documents (e.g. brochures) but not the editable
source version in Open Document Format (e.g. .ODT). This seems to
violate the open source principle.
The reasons are of a practical nature. ODT files are hard(er) to varify, because
they are just zip files that could contain anything. Also, they can contain
things like java applets, which are potentially dangerous. I think these are the
resons for not allowing office-style formats. Someone correct me if i'm wrong.
