The public GitHub repository "pdf-issues" hosted by the PDF Association provides all developers a means of openly reporting issues against any published PDF 2.0 related standard for review and resolution by industry and ISO experts. All issues in PDF specifications are important, from minor typos and formatting issues, to larger ambiguous, unclear or apparently contradictory statements. By reaching consensus on resolutions as an industry, PDF interoperability and implementation reliability will be improved.
Resolutions to issues in the following ISO publications are supported:
- PDF 2.0 [ISO 32000-2:2020]
- PDF/A-4 [ISO 19005-4:2020]
- PDF/X-6 [ISO 15930-9:2020]
- PDF/VT-3 [ISO 16612-3:2020]
- ECMAScript for PDF 2.0 [ISO 21757-1:2020]
Resolutions proposed here are not officially authorized by the ISO working groups responsible for PDF 2.0 related standards (ISO TC 171 SC 2 and ISO TC 130 WG 2), and may be changed in future ISO publications. A complete list of all current work in progress of each PDF-related ISO working group is also maintained by the PDF Association.
The current set of resolved issues are presented as
deletions) to the published wording in the relevant ISO standard organized by clause number.
GitHub Issue numbers will appear as popup tooltips when hovering over any addition or deletion and refer back to
closed GitHub pdf-issues with a "proposed solution" label.
Due to ISO copyright, only minimal surrounding text from the relevant ISO standard is provided that is sufficient to locate precisely where the resolution is being applied.
