@bearND! awesome, can you add that as well?
@bearND are you able to get the type of reference?
@Jdlrobson but what about the sections in MFE?
@ArielGlenn thanks for the confirmation.
I personally haven't seen multiple sizes available in any other packs, so this makes sense.

@Nuria thanks will do!
@phuedx just want to make sure this doesn't get lost in your spec.
I spoke with @phuedx about this topic. Just to document here:
Once we figure out where we are hosting and how to get URLs, we can start work on this.

@Tbayer if it’s difficult we can probabaly forego the Wikidata query. That’s not as important as the other queries.
@bd808 np... that’s what this ticket is trying to find out - we don’t know how and where this fits in to our infrastructure.
Please open one
@chasemp these Zim files will be used to support offline reading within the Android app. So they will actively be used by the users who are interested in having large amounts of content for offline consumption.
@bearND it is.
We will know the definitive list (and then the total size) once this task is complete: T169905: Determine the list of compilations to make available in V1
@bd808 I think Kiwix is using our Cloud VPS to generate Zim files. I assume that means we can do the same to generate some new files for our Android app?
Current thinking is somewhere along this line:
@GWicke I created this ticket to capture some of the questions we had elsewhere about the layering.
Moot for 2 reasons:
@Tbayer let us know if you need anything else
@Tbayer yes this is more about a one time estimate.
@bearND awesome thanks! This is basically looking like I expected. Here is some questions / feedback:

@ArielGlenn It was suggested that the servers that host XML dumps would be a good fit for this use case. Do you have any thoughts here? Do you know if there is space or have any information on how large files are served efficiently (caching, CDN, etc…)
@ssastry Within apps these sections are used to:
- Create a Styled Table of Contents with proper indentation
- Link from the Table of Contents to the actual section within the page
Makes sense to me... going to camel case for all projects makes sense - just wanted to make sure we were using the same conventions across projects.

@phuedx ping - just an FYI for your spec.
For reference see the thread named "Phame?"
I would be up for just saying "Readers" - Engineering, Design, Product, etc… all seem like good content.
@ssastry it would be helpful if you could contrast your proposals vs the existing implementation of the library that @GWicke mentioned above:
Just curious… because of the nature of the file format, would showing a list of titles for a large compilation would be non-performant?
I mean it isn't like a database and cursor situation, right?
Screen shot of the averages…
@Bawolff has done this in the past. Tagging.

Adding compatibility layer as a dependency… Some of the information in the JSON API will be extracted from the HTML Compatibility layer
