Discussion items

  • RDF 2.0 - order of the objects in triples is now truly random and no longer faux-preserved
Sufia/CC merger - Carrick has been on the calls with the arch. group, so he's probably been filling you in on that
PCDM - 2.0 may not happen
   Fedora performance - we're looking at switching the direction of memberships to make Fedora faster


PCDM 2.0 may not happen
recent discussion between islandora and hydra camps on IRC, islandora people wanted to fork 2.0 bc hydra people aren't receptive to their needs
  • Centering around filesets -- islandora people want to be able to attach a file to an object and leave it at that, Hydra people want to use filesets - idea behind 2.0 is that that would be required
  • Call last week: decided filesets are OK, as long as they're not required
Stefano Cossu discussion - want to move those around and have them as other objects?
Having the technical metadata as part of this fileset with object not a problem; becomes a problem when you try to index that
  • Not a problem, but would have to basically push up all of the indexed portion of the metadata into the fileset layer; write your own fileset indexer class; parsing of xml to get those values out
  • Need to add ... something, xml file in the header -- Esme Cowles -- this files describes this other file-- describedBy?
  • Within the file need additional predicates to id the metadata file
Not a blocking issue, just have to add some work into this
Our hanging MODS off off the object directly is an islandora thing -- to do what Hydra wants to do, we'd put that into a fileset
Describes predicate would be pointing to the object itself -- Esme Cowles is the person to contact for this (he wrote the PCDM 2.0 spec -- there are other people who've had this same use case)
  • If you want that MODS xml indexed you can index it as the fileset or index it as the object - doesn't think this matters
  • How does discoverability of this object vs. fileset affect this decision?
Adam suggests treating it as a binary -- putting in a fileset (fits runs) - you've be able to do things like generate a checksum
The fileset idea is the representation of one original binary (so the original idea would contain the derivatives as well)-- Julie says that these technically are three different binaries we're getting from MDPI
In filesets - custom predicates (you can identify the different pres/prod/access) to define the different filesets
Julie: prob don't want to make fileheader changes on received files; Adam: not modifying original file, it's an ldp thing -- http head response --
Sufia/CC merger
document prior to HydraConnect to outline all of the decisions
much of Sufia can go back into Curation Concerns; other things: flippable features that can be turned on and off
This is being driven by Hydra in a Box work from Stanford
