Goal

Complete and document the migration of the UVa repository from Fedora 3.x to Fedora 6.x.

Scope

This project includes the following:

  1. Installation of a Fedora 6.x instance
  2. Metadata and data model mapping
  3. Complete data migration
  4. Documentation of API changes and mappings between Fedora 3.x and 6.x
  5. Documentation of the process and decision points

The project team will not make direct changes to the front-end repository interface, but will assist local developers with this process.

Deliverables

  1. Documented metadata and data model mappings
  2. Updated migration utility capable of completing UVa data migration
  3. Verification tool to ensure data has been fully migrated with no loss
  4. Fully migrated repository dataset
  5. Functional Fedora 6.x instance populated with all migrated data
  6. Documented Fedora 3.x to 6.x API changes and mappings
  7. Documented migration process and outcomes

Requirements

Technical resources:

  1. Server provisioned with sufficient space and operating environment for Fedora 6.x and migrated data
  2. Exported Fedora 3.x data
  3. List of metadata schemas and fields
  4. List of data models
