The newly established DSpace Development Fund supports the development of new features prioritized by DSpace Governance. For a list of planned features see the fund wiki page.

Title (Goal)Structure - Metadata for all levels of object hierarchy (e.g. for Communities and Collections)
Primary ActorEnd User
Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

Users should be able to manage metadata descriptions related to any DSpaceObject.

It should be possible to assign a "Profile" or "Template" that defined Metadata field, type, requirement, syntax, authority control. This support should operate independent of mechanism of deposit (submission, sword deposit, item import).
