7.4 Import/export format
This section describes the import/export format. This is the format produced by the export tool, and expected by the import tool.
The format consists of a directory structure containing files (XML files and binary data files). This directory structure can optionally be zipped, though this is not required. Both the import and export tool support zipped or expanded structures.
+ root + info + meta.xml + namespaces.xml + variants.xml + schema.xml + retired.xml + collections.xml + documents + <document id> + <branch>~<language> + document.xml + files containing binary part data
The import structure starts below the "root", thus there should not be a directory called "root" in the import structure.
The only file that is really required is the info/namespaces.xml file, all the rest is optional, including the documents.
