Test fodp file

Same goes for .fodp (OpenDoc' Presentation)

Comment 2 Damian Jansen 2014-01-23 05:15:19 UTC
Further testing indicates it applies to all Libreoffice .f*** (Open Document format) files.

Tested using LibreOffice 3.4.5 on RHEL6.4

I haven't heard of .fodt before, so I looked it up on wikipedia:

"The OpenDocument format supports the following two ways of document representation:

"As a single XML document - also known as Flat XML or Uncompressed XML Files. Single OpenDocument XML files are not widely used. Filename extensions for a single OpenDocument XML documents are not defined in the OpenDocument technical specification, but commonly used are .xml, .fodt, .fods, ... etc."


So, we're talking about a single XML file instead of the usual "multiple XML files inside a ZIP container".

As if the (compressed) ODT files weren't taking up enough space...

Comment 4 Damian Jansen 2014-01-28 05:04:42 UTC
It appears that it isn't our parsing of the documents that is wrong, but the fact we incorrectly state we support them at all.

Fix: Remove .fod* files from the list of supported filetypes in 
zanata-war/src/main/resources/messages.properties tag jsf.SupportedUploadFormats
