In this paper we describe our experience adopting the Research Object Bundle (RO-Bundle) format with BagIt 
serialization (BagIt-RO) for the design and implementation of "tales" in the Whole Tale 
platform. A tale is an executable research object intended for the dissemination of 
computational scientific findings that captures information needed to facilitate understanding, 
transparency, and re-execution for review and computational reproducibility at the time of publication. 
We describe the Whole Tale platform and requirements that led to our adoption of BagIt-RO, specifics 
of our implementation, and discuss migrating to the emerging Research Object Crate (RO-Crate)
