  • Less redundancy between DSpace & Fedora code and development.
  • Ability to combine development work/projects – a larger pool of developers working on common technologies.
  • DSpace will also be able to take advantage of features offered by Fedora (which are not available in DSpace). Some examples may include:
    • File versioning feature of Fedora, which DSpace could utilize to support versioning of DSpace Objects.
    • More flexible architecture, which may allow DSpace to eventually support hierarchies other than "Community -> Collection -> Item"
    • Flexible relationships model, which may allow for better defined relationships between DSpace Objects (e.g. linking together all articles within a Journal Issue, or all Issues within a Journal)
