Metadata Interchange V3

Many thanks to everyone who commented on the previous edition of Some Notes on Metadata Interchange. I’m in New Orleans for the Internet2 Fall Member Meeting this week, and as I expect to be discussing this area with a number of the other people attending I think this seems like a good time to publish a revision. This edition goes into more detail in some areas, as well as improving sections which needed clarification.

  • snomi-v3.pdf is a clean copy of the document for new readers
  • snomi-v3-diff.pdf includes change indications for people who have read the previous edition

I continue to welcome comments and discussion. The next edition might be a couple of weeks away, but will likely go into more detail on what I think an aggregation appliance might need to include.

Long overdue! My humble view from the trenches:
