Topics in the Waiting...

  • Topics which are still on the "back burner" (which need someone to lead a "Special Topic" meeting around them)
    • Discuss improving how DSpace handles Metadata (From past meetings discussions, this seems popular). Several ideas mentioned recently:
      • Updating to current DCMI standards: DS-805
      • Creating a new "dspace" internal usage schema (for administrative, or non-DC metadata)? Formalize the "dc" schema to be strictly valid QDC/DC?
      • Metadata on all DSpace objects (not just Items)
    • Discuss forming a "Documentation Management Team"? Or reworking our procedures for managing/reviewing/approving Docs on the Wiki.
      • UPDATE: Jeff Trimble will lead a discussion on this in April or May. Still working on date.
    • More discussion of Proposed RoadMap to 2.0 before OR11
      • In meantime, feel free to forward thoughts on to Tim or everyone (via dspace-devel or dspace-commit).
