titleThis page is outdated / obsolete!

This page details an ideal from Open Repositories 2010 which was loosely called "DSpace with Fedora inside".  Since that point, this concept never gained leverage or momentum in the DSpace or Fedora communities.  It is now considered outdated/obsolete based on the latest technology roadmaps for each platform. At this time, there are no immediate plans to merge DSpace and Fedora or rebuild DSpace as a Fedora-based application.  For more information on the direction of both DSpace and Fedora, please consult their respective technology roadmaps.

Please note that this FAQ is still an early draft – feedback and comments are welcome! Contact Tim Donohue (tdonohue <AT> duraspace <DOT> org) or Valorie Hollister (vhollister <AT> duraspace <DOT> org) if you have additions / changes you'd like to see in this FAQ.

At the Open Repositories 2010 conference, DuraSpace recommended that the DSpace community begin to work more closely with the Fedora community to allow DSpace software to run "on top of" the Fedora platform. Essentially, this would mean that the DSpace application would have an option to install it with "Fedora Inside". What follows is an initial FAQ around this proposal.
