What should be the qualities of a project in this area?

  1.  Richly nuanced and powerful knowledge base (a metadata activity and not code building)
  2. One layer doesn't involve any human vetting---anyone in the bamboo community can add things but another layer would require filtering (for example, certain kinds of metadata/documentation is required to add a piece of software.
  3. This is a metadata project and the content will come from other places within Project Bamboo
  4. Data structures will be extensible to allow for user input and additions.

What could be done in one year?

  1.  Data model of the content types
  2. Research what similar systems already exist

What could be done in two years?

  1. Create a proof of concept demonstrator with one user interface for Services, Content, and Tools and use it to demonstrate what would be needed for Narratives, Recipes, and Activities.
  2. Further elaboration of the metadata repository and a basic implementation

What may be the dependencies or necessary relationships?

  1. Need data models from other groups
  2. Relevant "standards" will be defined by the 4.3, 4.4, and 4.5 groups
  3. The Explore/Plan/Build consortium
