The LotroMod format is specified here on the wiki
and it's very easy to use!
I would like to suggest that you keep support for files with the .zip extension as well - provided that they include the required xml file. Mainly because it's kinda counterproductive in combination with the subversion available here - which can only generate .zip files. Although I can edit my trunk to include the necessary xml file, I don't have any control over that extension.
