I_desire_pdfa Hello. kens Last week I came here to submit a validation problem using Ghostscript to transform a pdf to pdf/A format. Original file: https://www.mycloud.ch/s/S0028618552F3DE6E2A4615786336B696E88B2A0383 Command line used: gs -dPDFA=2 -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -dNOSAFER -sColorConversionStrategy=RGB -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dPDFACompatibilityPolicy=114:05.11 
  -sOutputFile=converted_PDFA_document.pdf /Library/PDFA/PDFA_def.ps document.pdf14:05.12 
  Using https://www.pdf-online.com/osa/validate.aspx I received 14:06.15 
  ResultDocument does not conform to PDF/A.DetailsValidating file "converted_PDFA_document.pdf" for conformance level pdf1.7XML line 10:25: xmlParseCharRef: invalid xmlChar value 0.XML line 10:30: xmlParseCharRef: invalid xmlChar value 0.XML line 10:35: xmlParseCharRef: invalid xmlChar value 0.14:06.15 
kens If you think you've found a bug, best to report a bug at https://bugs.ghostscript.com and attach a file there. I've not seen a validator complain about our XMP before, and its all boiler plate anyway. I find it unlikely we're writing a NULL byte out in there.14:07.10 
I_desire_pdfa but then chrisl suggested I should use veraPDF as a validator and it validated well. He still thought it should be a good idea I report this back14:07.18 
kens VeraPDF is not a bad validator IME, other validators vary considerably, I've found several that raise false errors, and some that miss glaring faults.14:08.05 
chrisl kens: It *looks* like the validator is wrong. I figured it might be useful for you to be aware of it - not necessarily for you to do anything about it14:08.58 
I_desire_pdfa Ok so I don't report this as a bug ?14:10.42 
kens I'd rather see it as a bug report, because otherwise I'll forget about it.14:11.00 
I_desire_pdfa Ok I do it then. Thanks for your answers.14:11.18 
kens (I have a notoriously poor memory)14:11.23 
  I_desire_pdfa: don't forget to attach the pdfa_def.ps file you are using, and the ICC profile14:12.10 
I_desire_pdfa Ok I will14:13.20 
kens Thanks, without that I may not be doing the same as you14:13.38 
I_desire_pdfa Ok done. Thanks and bye !14:35.09 
kens Thanks, I'll look at it asap14:35.35
