Dear all,

I just had a discussion about the OAIS with a colleague who is preparing a course for French students and we exchanged for a long time about the difference between the Descriptive Information and the Package Description. We came to the point that we don't see the difference anymore. In the figure 2-3 we talk about "Descriptive Information about the Package" but the Figure 4-13 we have the "Package Description" for things that seem to be the same.
Can someone explain me the difference ? And do you think we should include some clarifications in the OAIS (using the 5-years review) ?
